Les écrivains djadides turkmènes A. Kulmuhammedov et O. Vepaev sur eux-mêmes et sur leur époque

Abstract : This article presents some aspects of the life and the work of two Turkmen Jadid writers, A. Kulmuhammedov (1885-1931) and O. Vepaev (1885-1937), who were severely attacked in 1931 by the Brigade of the verification of the literature, and notably by O. Tachnazarov (1902-1942). He wrote long articles in the journal “Turkmen Studies” (Turkmenovedenie), where he denounced O. Vepaev as an enemy of the Soviet power based on some citations of his poems. During the entire Soviet period, the literary critics continued to give a very negative interpretation, as Tachnazarov did, of the writings of A. Kulmuhammedov and O. Vepaev, who were characterized as nationalists, panturkists, and enemies of the people. This is only by the end of the 1980’s that scholars have gradually changed their mind about these two writers, and that some positive judgement about their literary legacy started to be published.
