Mongolian literature

Mongol literature has been greatly influenced by its nomadic oral traditions. The “three peaks” of Mongol literature, The Secret History of the Mongols, Geser and Jangar, all reflect the age-long tradition of heroic epics on the Eurasian Steppes. Mongol literature has also been a reflection of the society of the given time, its level of political, economic and social development as well as leading intellectual trends.
