Folklore and literary continuum in the north caucasian novel of the late xx-th century in the aspect of ethnopedagogy



Palabras clave:

folklore-literary continuum, Ingush literature, Karachay-Balkar literature, Nart epic, ethno-oriented learning, identity.


The purpose of the work is to comprehend the folklore-literary continuum in the major epic works of national writers. The relevance of the research is due to the scientific and cognitive interest in folklore aesthetics, which determined the dynamics of the development of artistic thought. The novelty of the research is to study the specifics of the inseparable interaction of oral literature and literature within the chronological period of the 1960s-1990s. The main attention is projected on the novel prose of the classics of Ingush and Karachay-Balkar literature Idris Bazorkin (1910-1993) and Alim Teppeev (1937-2010), who made a significant contribution to the development of artistic and intellectual thought of the North Caucasus region. The creative nature of the connection of these aesthetic systems contributes to the philosophical understanding of the historical events recreated by the authors in the life of an ethnic group, the comprehension of national psychology. The appeal to the images of the Ingush and Karachay-Balkar Nart epos, folklore motives is due to the solution of the problems of the spiritual evolution of the literary hero in the context of time. The conducted research allowed us to conclude that the continuity of folklore and literature gives prose works a high aesthetic beginning, the factor of creative evolution contributes to the creation of a national picture of the world, the achievement of artistic expressiveness.
