In many studies, we observe lots of poets and authors who had been living under the Soviet regime with the works criticizing or praising the relevant regime. Among those there are some who regarded praising as a compulsory routine, as well as some others expressing their real feelings regarding with the issues. During the post-independence era, some poets and writers often came across with frustrations as they had the idea to compensate for the years that was lost in the past in a short time, and as a result they imagined creating a new World that would make people happy soon before independence with all aspects.
