“Tales of mountains and steppes”

The book “The Tale of the Mountains and the Steppes” by Ch. Aitmatov includes works: “The First Teacher”, “Jamilya”, “My Poplar in a Red Kerchief”, “Mother Field” and “Camel Eye”.

The image of a woman in the story “Jamil,” no one before Aitmatov earlier in Eastern literature was so open. The heroine is born of the very land of Kyrgyzstan. She lived until the appearance of her husband and mother-in-law like a streamlet, bound with ice. They could not even imagine that this trickle could wake up and recoil, zaburlit and go in search of an outlet to free life. Ch. Aitmatov shows the problem of the collision of a new and old way of life and life. This is a complex and common problem. When the heroes tried to solve it in a straightforward manner, they lacked psychological persuasiveness. However, Aitmatov avoided this shortcoming.

The heroine of the story “Mother’s Field” tells

about her hard life. She listens to the land, before which you can not lie and do not falsify. The reader understands the author’s position, which is that the fate of one person is an integral part of the nationwide destiny.

In the story “The First Teacher” Ch. Aitmatov tries to create a powerful realistic image of the communist. He shows his feat, as well as the ideological and moral connection between him and the new generation. Teacher Duishen was the son of a poor man. He passionately carried out his work as a teacher in the village. His feat is not only that he accustoms the Aulian children to knowledge, but also positively affects the entire adult population of the village. It is supported by fellow villagers.

In the early 60-ies appeared Aitmatov’s story “The Poplar in a Red Headscarf” and “The Camel’s Eye.” In both stories, the writer describes the situation of an acute conflict in the sphere of production and in the personal life of the heroes. The verbosity is always alien to them. Through actions and subtle details the author shows the unity of loving hearts for whom an explanation of love does not mean love itself.
