Philology Matters


Abdulla Kadiri’s novel, “The Days Gone By” reveals a wide range of universal themes and problems. Therefore, it is very difficult to define its all features unambiguously. Nevertheless, it can be argued that, having laid the foundation of the work for a beautiful love story, the author was able to touch upon the complex problem of the confrontation between God and the devil, light and darkness in the density of mankind. The novel reflects the social and political life of the power and trade strata of the then feudal society. The writer, based on his own progressive views, reveals a number of problems that caused democratically inclined people of that time serious concern: old customs and prejudices, national isolation and narrow-mindedness, the place and role of women in society, and the rights of the working poor.The historical situation described in the novel is characterized by the beginning of the struggle, albeit still timid, weak, but already emerging democratic ideology of respect for the rights of any person and enlightenment in all sectors of the Uzbek people, against the very strong with its state institutions, social attitudes, religious relations and family homebuilding, stupidly childish inquisitorial feudal order. In fact, the writer gives in the novel a comprehensive picture of the khan's power system, destroying any dissent and permeating all segments of the population and, under these conditions, a picture of the enslaving existence of simple people, bright and pure in their lives and endeavors.
