One of the largest cities of the Southern region of the Republic of Azerbaijan is Lankaran, whose name is repeatedly mentioned in various forms (Lankerkunan, Lancon, Langaran, Langaran, Lankan, etc.) in the sources of ancient and medieval works. The literary environment in Lankaran, which had a certain weight in the social and political life of Azerbaijan from the middle of the 18th century, from the period of the khanates, was mainly formed from the middle of the 19th century and continued and developed in its own way until the 1960s. The article provides an overview of the history of the Lankaran literary environment, and provides information about one of the first literary gatherings in Azerbaijan, "Fovcul-fusaha" and its members. At this time, it was considered necessary to provide brief information about other literary assemblies operating in Azerbaijan in the XIX work next to "Fovcul-fusaha". In addition to these, information about the Lankaran literary environment up to the 60s of the 20th century was also given, and the literature created in this environment was valued as an integral part of Azerbaijani culture.
