Art opportunities of the ballad, the genre of the Western European literature which was widely spread in the romanticism era, become demanded in the XX-XXI centuries literature including in modern Tatar literature in which a specific place was always held by liro-epic works. The novelty of the conducted research is determined by the fact that ballad is considered as one of the genres reflecting essential feature of poetics of lyrical works of the Tatar poet Zulfat (Malikov Dulfat Usmanovich) – their narrativity. A number of the poems of Zulfat having author's designation of a genre "ballad" or reproducing traditional ballad plots and also representing different theme groups (historical, military, love ballads) became a subject of the analysis. It is established that this art form functions in the poet’s works as a special way of expression of existential situations of human life. The received results matter for the characteristic of tendencies and regularities of historico-literary process of the end of the XX – the beginning of the  XXI centuries, determination of specifics of national art thinking.
