Natavan Mustafaeva

The novel “Babek” which above the outstanding Azerbaijani writer Enver Mammadkhanly worked for many years, is original and close to the historical reality compared to the other works devoted to Babek, the hero of the Azerbaijani people. Inspite of the reality of the representation of all the historical events in the work sometimes we meet the overstatements in the novel, but they do not harm to the historical content of the novel.
