Abstract. Introduction. The introduction indicates the relevance of the analyzed image of the motherland in modern Buryat prose when shaping the patriotism of schoolchildren and students.
Materials and Methods. The study of the formulated problem relies on the methods of cultural-historical and comparative analysis, generalization and synthesis; and the actualization method, which made it possible to comprehend the features of the motherland image created in the prose of modern writers of Buryatia.
Results of the research. The image of the motherland in the books by modern Russian-speaking writers of Buryatia consists of several components: the steppe as a nationally marked space, village, family, and others. The most frequent image – the one of the village – given in the village/city, friend/foe opposition, significant for Buryat prose writers, is filled with everyday details and trifles connected with the native home and native people that acquire a symbolic meaning. The blood connection with the homeland helps the heroes overcome the catastrophic nature of time and return to the origins and the spiritual fabric of life.
Conclusion. The study of the motherland image in the prose of Buryatia indicates the relevance of this topic in teaching regional literature.
