At the turn of the XX-XXI centuries the point of view was established in the Russian literary science, according to which the literature of socialist realism (Soviet literature) has undoubted aesthetic and historical value, and its own unique features. At the same time, the conviction matured that it was necessary to reanalyze the classical texts of the Soviet period from extremely non-ideological standpoints (as far as it is possible in humanitarian studies). Kavi Najmi's novel "Spring Winds" is considered a classic work of Tatar socialist realism. It clearly expresses the generic features of Tatar socialist realism, when all components of a literary text obey the dictates of the dominant ideology. The analysis of the poetics in the system of potamonyms of Kavi Najmi's novel "Spring Winds" convincingly demonstrates this. The novel is replete with references to different rivers: Volga, Kazanka, Lena, Pechora ... At that, the description of these rivers often depends on a hero who perceives them: a positive or a negative one.
