Turdi

 

(pen name Faroghi). Dates of birth and death unknown. Uzbek poet of the 17th and early 18th centuries who wrote in Uzbek and Tadzhik.

Turdi traveled extensively. He took part in the popular uprising of 1685–86 against the despotism of the Ashtarkhanids. Turdi wrote lyric and satirical verse; his ghazals and mukhammasat, particularly the “Satire on Subhan-kuli-khan” and “The Irritable Gentlemen, ” are models of progressive Uzbek literature. Turdi’s divan (collected poetry) has been preserved.
