Chingiz Aitmatov, creating his literary masterpieces in Kyrgyz and Russian languages, had been never limited by ordinary translation. He was seeking transfer of the national image in the context of a particular culture resorted to various stylistic techniques and means of artistic expression.The titles’ comparison of the Chingiz Aitmatov’s novel “Mother Earth” in Kyrgyz and Russian languages is testified on a deep understanding by the author of the originality of two peoples’ worldview. Figurative-semantic representations and values underlying that this understanding influenced the formation of these cultures and peculiar to native speakers. It suggests the presence of two national-cultural traditions in the image of the world and in creativity of the outstanding writer.
