Ulmasova Zamirakhon Habibulloyevna


Temur`s personality as a ruler of Samarqand and a creator of the great Empire, including Central Asia, the Far Caucasus and China is reflected in the following novels: The «Great Temur» by E. Berezikov, «Temurlan. Ruler and Leader» by the writer-cholar in Oriental Studies Garold Lemb and «Temurlan», «Shaker of the Universe» and also in the novel «Temurlan`s Error» by A. Kamdam and L. Chigrin as well. Garold Lemb reflects Temur as a mighty leader and at the same time as a cruel butcher making pyramids of the heads of innocent people. However, E. Berezikov praises the ruthless tyrant Temur within the framework of his novel. In his article the author determines the correlation between history and creative fantasy in the novel «Temurlan`s Error» done by A. Hamdam and L. Chigrin. Generalship action of the protagonist, his numerous battles, lots of cruel annihilations of people, captures of other states transformed consequently into the vast Empire are brightly depicted. Adducing the result of the research the author convincingly proves that, although a number of writers create a positive Temur`s image, this conqueror remained as a ruthless tyrant in the history of the Universe.
