The Circular Simile in Pre-Islamic Poetry (A Study on the Image) (in Arabic)

Auther : Abdul-Qader Al-Rabbaiy

The term tashbih da'iri (lit. circular simile) has been applied in this study to a particular poetical image, which has frequently occurred in Arabic poetry since the pre-Islamic era. A general survey of the poetry of this eracerned with poetical images, could not escape this stylistic phenomenon.
Moreover, the survey shows that certain poetical types are always connected with this image within the common traditional artistic constraints of the old Arabic poetry which were followed by the famous poets of that era.
These artistic constraints, however, have often caused poets to introduce some internal changes and to produce  some personal variations. As a result the typical could be changed into something individual. According this phenomenon as a matter of fact together with its historical background.
Moreover, this paper tackles the themes of this image as well as the points of agreement and disagreement among the poets who employed it as part of the structure of some of their poems. This paper even goes beyond that to link the images of these themes to the pre-Islamic pagan mentality, deriving benefit from the mythological and popular lore of that era. This helps to deduce magnificent potential significant points concerning this image in particular and the pre-Islamic poetry in general.
Since the circular simile forms a particular unit of certain dimensions within the framework of the poem, this paper tries to point out the relation or the potential relations between this unit and the whole pre-Islamic poem of which this unit is a part.
