Divine Monologues in the Poem “Forgiveness” by Osha Al-Suwaidi (Vision and Tool) (in Arabic).

Auther : Latifa Alhammadi

This piece of research seeks to shed light on the divine (or godly) monologue in the poem “Forgiveness” by the Emirati poet Ausha Al-Suwaidi (Known as Girl of the Arabs/1920-2018), by using the analytical descriptive methodology, in addition to the stylistic approach that contributed to identifying the features of the text that give it its idiosyncrasy and uniqueness.
This paper addresses the vision of the poet Ausha Al-Suwaidi in her poem “Forgiveness” and attempts to uncover the artistic devices she used and their role in expressing such a vision. The most important ones here include negation, repetition, dialogue, intertextuality, pronominal displacement, sound effects that all unfold the poet’s deep meanings and fathomless poeticness.
The poem (Forgiveness) constitutes a connective tissue between two complementary worlds: the earthly world and the Hereafter world, through which the poet was able to demonstrate her artistic skills in probing the sacred and transcendental meanings, which enabled her to compose a poem ‘embroidered’ with various artistic devices that reflected her inner spirituality, pure self and distinguish thought.
The study also tries to handle the poet’s ability in expressing the states of the human soul while she is praying to her Lord. Going to significations beyond the text in question can reveal the best possible ways of for spiritual invocation with God (i.e. Allah).
In the end, the study reached some conclusions, the most important of which is that firstly the art of divine monologue - in general - is full of expressive formulas and remarkable stylistic structures that qualify it to be an artistic discourse, like many other forms of literary writing. Secondly, in the divine monologue in this poem, there is a clear religious tendency derived from the Qur’an, the basis for such a poet’s vision. The poet has invested in different artistic and expressive methods and modalities that gave her text various denotations and connotations, and through which she expressed her feelings towards spiritual invocation with God, relying in this on explication rather than implication.
Among the recommendations offered in this study are the following: reviewing and/or re-visiting the divine monologue texts, as this genre is often confined to one point of view: worshipping, requesting and supplicating, without turning eyes to the literary beauty and creativity and textual and stylistic characteristics that make it a distinctive fabric.
Key words: Monologues to God, Forgiveness, Ausha Al-Suwaidi, Vision, Tool.
