Abstract

Motifs and artistic means in eposes are interrelated. The article considers the motif and different types of motifs as motif-situation, motif-speech and motif-episode in analysis of intra genre transformation of artistic means in "My Grandfather Korkut's Book" epos and compares it with other Turkic eposes (Uzbek "Alpamysh", Kazakh "Alpamys", "KoblandyBatyr" and Altai "Maaday-Kara"). Artistic means as metaphor, epithet, comparison and hyperbole play an important role in genesis and development of the epic situation. The metaphor is typical for the motif-situation and hyperbole is associated with the motif-episode. The artistic means of various epic situations in different Turkic eposes has the specifics. The same types of motif and poetic means often depict a certain epic situation in heroic epos.
