AbstractThe majority of literary texts and their various genres are based upon the three units of tense (past, present and future). Despite the fact that there are many critical studies in this field, yet, there is still a room for interpretation since those literary texts, especially pre-Islamic ones, are loaded with various critical visions. As such, we chose to study Imru' al-Qais’s Nuniyya addressing the very reasons for the poet’s vision of the absurdism of the mnemonic movements as well as nostalgia and at the same time his precipitancy towards future and its pleasures which indicates the poet’s pursue to neglect both past and present laying a tremendous interest to future and the pursue of its pleasures. This vision gushed out due to the poet’s consciousness of the inevitability of death, therefore surging towards future trying, as possible, to win as much of its pleasures.
