In his satirical poems and the narrative poems Kemchontoi (1900) and Babyrkany (1900), Togolok Moldo denounced the greed of the rich. In the narrative poem A Tale of Waterfowl and Land Birds (1908), he depicted social contradictions in allegorical form. Togolok Moldo greeted the October Revolution of 1917 with enthusiasm and wrote the narrative poems Revolution (1918) and Freedom (1919–23). He was well known as a reciter of the epic poem Manas. Togolok Moldo’s poems have been translated into many languages of the peoples of the USSR.
