UDK: 821

Pages: 18 - 23


The article attempts to assess the reception of the Dagestan theme in the Turkish memoir literature of the last quarter of the XIX – early XX century based on the biographical essay of the writer and historian Mehmed Arif-bey. In the era of great historical events, such as the Russian-Turkish war of 1877–1878, the Dagestan theme was very relevant to the geopolitics of the Ottoman state, and the problems associated with it were reflected in the Turkish literature, especially in memoiristics.
