Sayyora Khamdamova


The article is devoted to the analysis of the mastery of the use of folklore elements in the poems of Atoyi, a truly popular poet. Turkish literature up to Alisher Navoi, in particular, the works of Atoyi, Sakkoki, Lutfi, Gadoi, Yakin, Muqimi, Amir, is simple and clear in terms of language, fluent in style and resonant. This is explained by the widespread use of folk proverbs and figurative expressions in their poems. Compatibility for the people is also a key feature of Atoyi's poems.
