The starting point for highlighting the Northern text of the literature of Yakutia from the point of view of geographical toponymic characteristics is the concept of "Far North (Arctic)".

The description of the northern territories and images in an artistic interpretation is filled with a distinctive symbolic meaning associated with local mythology, sacred geography.

This is a whole picture of the world, preserving national identity in itself, both in form and in content, in value guidelines.
