A Tale of Two Aqyns: Pushkin, Abai, and the Making of the Kazakh Literary Canon

The poet Abai Qunanbaiuli (1845–1904) today enjoys a dual legacy as the father of modern Kazakh literature (as distinct from its oral tradition) and also as an enlightener who translated the Russian classics into Kazakh and acted as a vital bridge between the two cultures. Much of Abai’s contemporary reputation owes its existence to the twentieth-century author, critic, and scholar Mukhtar Auezov (1897-1961), whose biographical writings on the poet formed the standard narrative of his life and work.
