Author: عمّار بركات عبد الله, محمد
Abstract: The main objective of this researchis to study traditionalism and modernism trends in the poetry of the prominent Arab immigrant poet Ilyā Abū Māḍī, aiming to clarify its main characteristics and to study the different poetic aesthetics that made this poet stand out from his contemporaries and become the most popular immigrantArab poet. This is clearly reflected in his ghazal" love poems", poetic proverbs, wisdom poems and imaginativeand realistic narrative poems. The research aims also to study the encounter between the attitudes of optimism and pessimism in his poems and analyze them in the light ofthe poet،s alienationand estrangement, in anew world far from home,bewildering between hope and despair. The research also endeavors toclarify how the poet was influenced by the skepticism of Descartes,the romanticthought andin particular the philosophical perspectives of the famous Arab poet, philosopher Abū Al-calā,AL -Macarrī. The researchthen descendsto examine his occasional poetry whichwas used bythe poet as a means of expressing hisperception of life andviews.The ultimate goal of the research is to specify Ilyā،s poetic attitudes towards traditional is modernism. The research adopted the descriptive analytical approachby quoting selected poems provided with extendedanalysis and commentaries. The research drew mostly upon the anthologies of Ilyā Abū Māḍīī asprimarys ource, books of modern Arabic and research literature were also used as a focal point of this investigation. The main findings can be summarized as follows: Ilyā started his poetic career as a traditionalist poet inspired by Arab poets from different historical stages: the Umayyadpoets, the Abbasids, the Andalusians and modern poets. Ilyā was an original poet and this led to him being recognized as a distinguished poet.Even some Arabcritics described him as the heir of Ahmad Shawqīand named him afterShawqī "the prince of Arab poets". His simple comprehensible poetic language made his poemsvery popular and appropriate for poetry curriculums in schools; thereupon several of these poems are abundantly present in school literary texts. Ilyā Abū Māḍī, was a traditionalist poet in following particular rhyme schemes and Arabicmetrical patterns and was a modernist poet in the manner in which he portrayed nature, andthis tieshim equally to both trends. It is worthy to mention that literary Christian figures in the region of Sham during that period of time,whose native language and by extension cultural expression is Arabic,showed great amount of tolerance and acceptance of Islam. Those immigrant poets remained faithful to this moral heritage in their new homes. To highlight this,the research recommends a study on religious tolerancein the poetry of IlyāAbūMāMāḍī.
