Kyrgyz poetry continued as a part of oral culture tradition until XIX century. From the middle of this century, Kyrgyz poetry entered a new turning point after folk poets having madrasa education had started to collect their manuscripts in books. These poets read the works belonging to the Oriental literature in addition to their theological knowledge attained from madrasas.

With the start of Soviet era, the works of these poets were banned. Hence, Kyrgyz-Soviet literature whose foundations were just laid was cut its relations with the past; and it developed in a media which the regime wanted.

Although Ermatov is one of the Soviet era poets, with the thought that Kyrgyz literature can be fed from its own veins of civilization after Soviet period, he tends towards the Oriental literature and opens the gates of “tradition” to Kyrgyz poetry. His epic, Muhammad Paygambar, is his most important work he has put forth within this sense. In his work, Ermatov has combined epic genre concerning with oral culture with structural properties of modern poetry and the world view of the Oriental literature.
