Abstract: The great European novelist and short-story writer, Franz Kafka, and one of the most famous eastern poets of Middle ages, Alisher Navoiy, at first blush seem to have absolutely nothing in common. But a detailed analysis of two distinguished works of the writers, reveals their surprisingly similar views in regard to interpretation of love and devotion concepts. Step-by-step comparison of one of the Mir Alisher Navoiy’s ghazals with The Metamorphosis of Kafka allows to correlate the messages of each masterpiece, and thus define the similarities in personal traits of each author.

Keywords: Love, devotion, The Metamorphosis, Ghazal, Kafka, Alisher Navoiy, comparative analysis, world literature.
