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.
