Intertextuality with modern literary figures in the poetry of Yassin Taha Hafez


  • Ahmed Jabbar Muhammad Mahdi, Dr. Hisham Qassem Issa


The invocation of literary figures as masks and symbols is one of the most important foundations that reflect the artistic semantic dimension in the texts of the poet (Yassin Taha Hafez) as an important motive for the structure of the poetic text. The movement is within the circle of media expression of an experience that takes place in the poet’s thoughts. It also gives vital activity to human thought to reach a greater distance towards the boundaries of the poet’s cognitive system and reveal an invisible experience that the reader may not be able to reveal easily. The mask always gives the poetic text effectiveness and intellectual and cognitive depth, so the poet invested his deep culture in both its Arab and foreign parts, to deepen his poetic experience and his poems. The recipient must arm himself with deep knowledge to discover the intertexts scattered in the poet's overall experience, and the follower of this poetic experience must deeply identify the characters summoned by the poet.
