The Employment of Religious and Mythical Traditionson in Some Samples of Modern Arabic Poems

College Of Basic Education Research Journal, 2012, Volume 11, Issue 4, Pages 190-214

This study aims at shedding light on the tradition that enriches the poetic experiences in order to be original and comprehensive. It also affects these experiences through artistic media which the reader touches. Thus, tradition is not an end, but it is a medium through which poets express their expectations and sufferings. The most areas of tradition belong to some religious events and myths such as "The last Supper "of the Christ and the myth of ''Sisyphus''. Some modern poets like Al-Sayyaab , Al-Bayyati, Amal Donkul, and Mahmood Darwish , Odynis , and Abdul Al- Aziz Al-Makalihi use these two sources which affect their poetic productions. They try to show the issue of the Arabic individual and to transmit it to the receiver.
