About The Book

Dr. Charbel Dagher’s book titled (Contemporary Arabic Poetry - the prose) published by Al Maaref Forum, studies the prose poem in terms of its evolution and general characteristics though the work of Mohammad Al Maghout and Unsi Al Haj. The book presents the difficulty of studying prose poetry, as the art form does not have an analytical perspective that is suitable to its nature and structure.
