Correspondence among the Senses in Ibn Hamdees al-Siqilli's Poetry (in Arabic).

Auther : Ibrahim al-Yaseen

This study aims at exploring correspondence among the senses in Ibn Hamdees Al-Siqilli's poetry and showing its influence in forming the artistic imagery. This is accomplished through investigating some of the types of correspondences Al-Siqilli uses, that enrich his poetry and endows it with several semantic and aesthetic dimensions.
The study consists of an introduction and two major sections:
The Theoretical section: Explores the concept of correspondence (among the senses) as proposed by several Western and Arab critics, and shows its influence on enriching semantics and meaning.
The Application section: Includes an applied study on the concept of correspondence in Al-Siqilli's poems, showing its influence on the poet's method in creating poetic imagery and expressing his thoughts.
The study concludes that correspondence (among the senses) is a manifestation of the rhetoric employed by the poet to invent new poetic images and create deep innovative meanings. These attract the reader and impress him with all the unusual imagery brought about by the merging of one sense with another as well as linguistic deviation.  The study also concludes that ancient Arabic poetry is replete with cases of correspondence (among the senses) as noted by many critics, who only commented on it without assigning it a specific name.
Additionally, the study shows that Ibn Hamdees' poetry is noticeably full of cases of correspondence (among the senses). For example, the eye acquires hearing and tasting capacity, the ear is made an eye, a mouth and a hand. The nose also is given mouth qualities, something that is also seen in the case of the hand where it can speak and divulge secrets. Conversely, the mouth is seen as an ear that hears. Such a unique poetic style enables the poet to reflect his emotional state and personal experience in addition to creating special poetic imagery that express his deep ideas.
