Abstract
Muhtar Magavin, who attracted the attention of the science and art community thanks to both his scientific studies on literature and his literary works in his twenties, is one of the distinguished writers of both Kazakh Soviet Literature and Independence Period Kazakh Literature. He became one of the indispensable writers for the Kazakh society since he tried to bring national values to the forefront in even his works he produced during the Soviet period. In his literary works, he reflected the national customs and traditions of the Kazakh people, the beautiful traditions and customs that were about to be forgotten, the temperament of the Kazakh people in a realistic and successful way. His novels, stories, long stories, scientific studies, textbooks, translations, and articles on various subjects have appeared in newspapers and magazines. The main subject of all his oeuvre is the socio-cultural situation of the Kazakh people, the protection of national identity and national language, the present and future situation of the Kazakh state and its people.
