A Special Concept of Free Verse in Tawfiq Sayigh's Collection 'Thalathu:na Qasi:da' (in Arabic)

Auther : Muslih A. Najjar

This research deals with Tawfiq Sayigh’s first collection of free verse ‘Thirty Poems’ (Thalathu:na Qasi:da). Sayigh used a new concept of free verse in this collection which was non-metric and differs from the “Tafcila” free verse of Nazik AlMala’ika and Badr Sha:ker AsSayyab. Sayigh’s free poetry depends more than ‘Tafcila’ free verse on imagination, internal rhythm, special words and an unusual form of sentence structure. Internal rhythm is that which parallels metric rhythm and depends either on some aspects of poetic language or on meaning.

This research also discusses the title of this collection and the way of entitling individual poems. It discusses the artistic perspectives of Sayigh’s poems concluding that they depend on the most important identifications of non-metric ‘free verse’.

This kind of poetic writing shows an aspect of Walt Whitman’s effect on modern an Arabic poetry, effect which started with Amin ArRayhani in the first decade of the twentieth century.

Sayigh’s free verse differs from other kinds of poetic writing in Arabic in some aspects, but it is not fully different. There are some aspects which his free verse shares with traditional Arabic poetry.
