This article justifies the use of romanticist concepts in the artistic thinking of Boborakhim Mashrab, a medieval Uzbek poet. We attempt to reconstruct specific aspects of the author's worldview through the analysis of his imagery. Names of romantic concepts play a special role in the artistic thinking of the author. They become the means the poet used to transmit his world-view constants. The research shows that among the stylistic devices used by B. Mashrab to express his thanatographic introspection there are many figures and devices related to the romanticist models of structuring poetic speech typical of the Middle Ages. The names of romantic concepts in the author’s world view play a special role. They help him transmit his world-view constants and perform different functions at different stages of his creative life. The foregrounding of natural elements within the thanatography of “Eastern Romanticism” and the formation of an axiological world-view based on them become a way of communication between the persona and the world. The poet achieves the heavenly, the divine through aestheticizing suffering and torments of love, as well as sacralizing thanatographic themes. The individual style of Mashrab features a synthesis of philosophy and lyrics, the emotional and the intellectual.
