MEMOIRS OF MAGOMED EFENDIEV IN THE CONTEXT OF DAGESTAN MEMOIR LITERATURE OF THE XX CENTURY

UDK: 8294

Pages: 71 - 77


Magomed Efendiev is the only author of memoirs about L. N. Tolstoy in the Dagestan memoir literature, because there are no other Dagestan memoirists in the literature about L. N. Tolstoy. M. Efendiev's memoirs contain many interesting details about the great writer and his family. In addition, the memoirs of Magomed Efendi-ev are also interesting in terms of a new look at the work of L. N. Tolstoy, in particular, for example, the similarity of some scenes of the trial in the novel «Resurrection» by L. N. Tolstoy and some aspects of the biography of M. Efendiev himself. Despite some controversial points, these memoirs are of undoubted value both for Dagestan literature in general, and for literature about L. N. Tolstoy.


Keywords: memoirs, literature about L. N. Tolstoy, autobiographical genre, memoirs as a genre, diaries, authenticity, portraits, social issues.
