Absract: The article discusses – in keeping with recent achievements in medieval literary research – the future prospects of study of Ali-Shir Nava'i’s life and works. By turning to and analyzing the phenomena of naẓira and mu‘ammā as practiced by Ali-Shir Nava’i, the article suggests the advantages of approaching the subject from the angle of comparative medieval scholarship. As the article holds, the available studies of the typologically similar phenomena in other national literatures shed new light on the medieval literary process in the Near and Middle East.
Keywords: Ali-Shir Nava’i, Turkic literatures, naẓira, non-stylized imitations, figurative language, mu‘ammā, Arabic script, comparative studies.

Absract: The article deals with the influence of German romanticism on the works of the prominent French massliterature author of the beginning of the 20th century – Gaston Leroux. His novelistic diptych “La Poupée sanglante” (“A Bloody Doll”, 1923) is based on a famous criminal case of Henri Landru and, at the same time, is very close in its plot to the renowned E.Th.A. Hoffmann novel “Der Sandmann” (“The Sandman”, 1816). The lengthy quote from Heinrich Heine’s book “Zur Geschichte der Religion und Philosophie in Deutschland” (“On the History of Religion and Philosophy in Germany”, 1835) has much weight in the diptych. Here, just like in other works of Leroux, quotations and allusions from prose and poetry of other authors are being rethought, sometimes in quite an ironic way.
Keywords: romanticism, Germany, novel, short story, quotation, fantastique, mass literature, android, doll.

Absract: This extended note enlarges upon a specific poetic form in Shakespeare – the shared sonnet as inset poem. In “Love’s Labour’s Lost” such a dialogue is conducted by King Ferdinand of Navarre and the Princess of France (act 5, sc. 2); in “Romeo and Juliet” – by the heroes of the title (act 1, sc. 5). Our comparison of the two passages helps to see how Shakespeare fitted the form and content of the shared sonnet to the meaning of a certain scene. This piece is written to commemorate Shakespeare’s 400th death anniversary.
Keywords: Shakespeare, shared sonnet, double sonnet (one complete plus one interrupted), “Love’s Labour’s Lost”, “Romeo and Juliet”.
