This course presents an overview of the major eras of Arabic poetry. We will analyze examples of Modern poetry, focusing in particular on how it deals with taboos and gender through the use of different styles, genres and strategies. The selected texts will include a variety of genres in poetry ranging from classical poems to prose poems. We will examine how political and social issues are expressed, focusing in particular on social injustice, poverty and war, but also love; and on how Arabic poetry plays a unifying role in the liberal movement all over the Arab world. Readings for the class are in both English and Arabic, but the class is conducted entirely in Arabic.
