The purpose of this article is to describe and reveal the origins and main trends in the development of the novel form in contemporary Kazakh literature. Addressing this issue, in our opinion, will make it possible to clarify the nature of the new correlation between the national and the international in the process of revealing the laws of the development of literature in different periods. The search for the origins of the development of epic prose in the context of contact with the culture of another world makes it possible to penetrate the dialectics of the historical and literary process of Kazakh prose.

Keywords: Russian-language prose, novel, plot, interrelation of literatures, Kazakh literature
