Abstract: The interpretation of mythological images on figurative sense in Uzbek modern poetry was analyzed in this article. Mythological images consist of mythonyms, their metaphorization – representing figurative sense based on comparison in modern poetry was shown through the examples given from modern Uzbek poetry. The devil is a mythological image made of fire and smoke, which can take on many forms. It is often portrayed as a goat. According to Islamic beliefs, the devils try to mislead people of faith and conscience. One of the most complex and universal zoomorphic images found in modern Uzbek poetry is the dragon. Dragon is a mythical creature with two or more heads with wings, sparkling, swallowing, and mouthful in various peoples’ oral form. He is an embodiment of evil. Contemporary Uzbek poetry, in the literal sense, combines the negative connotations of war, certain regimes, technique (cannon, ball), lust and ambition, as well as the positive meanings of the mistress of hair.
