Al-Harith Ahmad Al-Dhunaybat


This study examines the phenomenon of drama in Umayyad poetry, utilizing the poem "Amin Aal Nu'm" by 'Umar ibn Abi Rabiah as a specific example. It consists of an introduction, two main sections, and a conclusion. The first section provides a definition of this phenomenon, its origins, and its development, while also exploring the interplay between poetry and prose narrative arts and the resulting impact on the convergence of literary genres, with a particular focus on its implications within poetry. The second section delves into an analysis of the presence and positioning of this phenomenon within 'Umar ibn Abi Rabiah's poem through a study of its dramatic elements and their application within the poem's verses and segments. Finally, the conclusion presents the most significant findings and perspectives derived from this study. The textual approach is employed as a tool to elucidate the dramatic structure in both the formal and semantic aspects of the text and their interplay.
