The Modern Use of the She-Camels' Theme in Contemporary - Nabati Poetry .

Auther : Dr. Hamad O. AL-Ajmy

     In this paper I attempt to discuss the development of the she-camel's motif in the Nabati poetry using some poems composed during the last thirty years. The motif of the she-camel exists in both classical and modern poetry and in both formal (Fasih) and colloquial language. However, this paper argues that the motif of the she-camel has changed from the biological description of the she-camel that existed in the classical Arabic poem, to a mere symbol of the poem itself in the modern Nabati poem.
     The challenging task was to track the change in the motif of the she-camel in the classical poetry and modern Nabati poetry within the historical and cultural contexts of each poem. I will use the concept of (orality and literacy) that Walter Ong and Ruth Finnegan used to understand the reason behind the modern use of the theme of the she-camel in contemporary Nabati poetry.
