It is underscored that the development of poetry in literary circles referring to the late 19th andearly 20th centuries, especially in Sharifjon Makhdum Sadri Ziyo`s literary circlewas also influenced by literary critique of thisepoch. As evidence from literary sources, the author of the article adduces the examples ofpoetic gift testing, the results of poetry tournaments and poets` creative competitions, poetic model imitation, and response poems. In literary circles, which represented the literary tenet of the epoch, particular attention was paid to the study of the science of poetry, and the criteria of artistry in classical poetry being taken into account as well.
