Suleyman Rustam - Creativity


His first collection of poems, “From sadness to happiness”, written in 1927, was dedicated to Komsomol, civil war, courage of soldiers struggling for the Soviet power, as other poems of the poet, written in 1920’s (“Partisan Ali”, “Armless hero”).

The main theme of his works, created in 1930’s (“Romanticism of a night”), was the creation of romanticism of a collective work, attracting spiritual enrichment of people. “A good comrade” poem was dedicated to labor feats of cotton growers in Mugham steppes. In 1939-1940’s, S.Rustam wrote “Qachaq Nebi” novel. The poet used folk proverbs about Qachaq Nebi, expanded and deepened them socially and historically, gave a social perception to the novel. Main heroes of the novel are Qachaq Nebi - a famous leader of the national movement of the 19th century and Hejer - his brave wife and fellow fighter.

Nebi, the son of a poor peasant, working as a farm laborer at bey, didn’t bear cruelty and rudeness of his master and run to mountains and became “qachaq” (fugitive). He assembled dissatisfied peasants around him, vengeance for outraged people, took away money and commodities from the rich and gave them to the poor. He was supported by the whole neighborhood and courageously opposed tsar officers and gendarme and kept day-laborers in awe for a long time. And “noble brigand” Nebi’s revolt was also collapsed as every spontaneous peasant struggle.

Patriotic poems (“A day will come”, “To the sons of Azerbaijan”, “Old man’s answer”) written during the Great Patriotic War were dedicated to bravery and selflessness of the Soviet people, their unshakeable belief and victory over the enemy. Suleyman Rustam’s “Mother and a postman” poem had a great fame (1942). Mother waiting for news from his front-line soldier son for four months says the postman: “If there is not any letter for me…don’t come here again!” Disappointed postman goes away, but he is not offended, he is distressed by sufferings of the old mother. In her turn mother also regrets for her action. Finally, the postman brings a long-awaited letter and the postman and the whole neighborhood rejoices at the mother’s happiness. This poem, written with a great emotional strength, deeply excites a reader and evokes his heartwarming feelings.

During the postwar times the poet wrote a collection of poems called “Two shores”, dedicated to hard life of Azerbaijani paupers in Iran and postwar flourishing of the Soviet Azerbaijan. Image of hero Qafur Mammadov, who shielded his commander from enemies by his chest, was created in “Qafur’s heart” poem.

Famous quotes containing the word creativity:

    Any language is necessarily a finite system applied with different degrees of creativity to an infinite variety of situations, and most of the words and phrases we use are “prefabricated” in the sense that we don’t coin new ones every time we speak.
    David Lodge (b. 1935)

    The division between the useful arts and the fine arts must not be understood in too absolute a manner. In the humblest work of the craftsmen, if art is there, there is a concern for beauty, through a kind of indirect repercussion that the requirements of the creativity of the spirit exercise upon the production of an object to serve human needs.
    Jacques Maritain (1882–1973)

    Our current obsession with creativity is the result of our continued striving for immortality in an era when most people no longer believe in an after-life.
    Arianna Stassinopoulos (b. 1950)
