Kyrgyzstan, Kyrgyzstan, former Soviet republic and since 1991 independent republic of Central Asia and member of the CIS (Association of Independent States). Like other post-Soviet states, Kyrgyzstan has seen a sharp decline in production and living standards since independence. Although the Constitution is based on formal rules, the political decision-making process is strongly marked by tribal and clan networks and by contradictions between the populations of the North and the South.

Kyrgyzstan - literature

As in the rest of Central Asia, Kyrgyz poetry has for centuries unfolded through oral traditions, ie. proverbs and myths as well as lamentations, shepherd songs and heroic quatrains performed by highly respected akynes ('bards').

The heroic quatrain Manas is Kyrgyzstan's national epic, often referred to as the "Iliad from the steppe". It includes approximately half a million. verses and was first written down in its entirety in the late 1800-t.

The incorporation into the Russian Empire was met with opposition from tradition-bound and Muslim-minded Akynes such as Moldo Kulytj (1866-1917). Others were seized by the Russian revolutionary ideas, notably Toktogul Satylganov (1864-1933). As one of the first to write his poems in the new written language, he became one of the founders of Kyrgyz Soviet literature.

Barpy Alykulov (1884-1949) wrote poetry about the suppression of nomadic culture by e.g. the women. Moldogasy Tokabaev (b. 1905) laid the groundwork for the Kyrgyz drama in 1924 with the play The Unhappy Kakej. Aaly Tokombayev (1904-88) contributed to the development of Kyrgyz prose art, with the short story collection The Wounded Heart (1941).

Chingiz Ajtmatov has achieved the greatest international impact. Through his writing, the world has gained a unique insight into the Kyrgyz cultural values ​​and their sad degradation. In the post-Soviet debate, however, some have argued that Ajtmatov, as a Russian-language writer, cannot be considered truly Kyrgyz.
