The purpose of this article is to show that the image of the world of the Kazakh poet, represented by the Russian language, differs both from the Russian image of the world and from the Kazakh, i.e. a foreign language is capable to transform the national image of the world. On the basis of the creative work of the Kazakh poet, translator Bakhyt Kairbekov, the possibility of forming a transnational consciousness through universal and national images is shown. The appeal to his work is due not only to his outstanding talent, but also to the fact that we almost do not know what a modern Kazakh is like, what the world of his ancient homeland is like, nevertheless we live side by side. It was achieved using the method of lingua-cultural interpretation, with the help of which, firstly, the discrepancy between the images of the Kazakh and Russian ethno cultures was revealed, and, secondly, the transformation of the national image of the world was recorded. All the main problems raised in the poetry of Bakhyt Kairbekov draw images of Kazakh culture, the Motherland for him has become one of the main chords of creativity, but in his work there are almost no direct nominations (fatherland, country, etc.), the homeland appears through conjugated images of a horse, heath , freedom, rivers, water, mountains, sky, stars, etc. His poetic image is not a photographic copy of the real world of a Kazakh (heath, mountains, etc.), it contains the attitude of the depicted person to the aesthetic, moral and intellectual values of his people.
