Naila Mustafayeva

In the XVI century muhammases of great Azerbaijani poet Muhammad Fuzuli attract attention. His Turkish divan includes 3 muhammases and 2 tahmises. These poems attract attention firstly by the depth of thought and high artistry. Besides Fuzuli, in the XVI century muhammeses were written by such poets as Hulgi, Masihi, Yusif bek Ustajlu and Heydari. Azerbaijani muhammases of XVI century clearly reflect the literary process and literary communications between poets of Turkish peoples of that time.
