Postmodernist Poetry: Some of its Challenging Salient Trends (in Arabic)

Auther : Ahmad Y. Majdoubeh

The aim of this paper is to shed light on some of the prominent features of (English and American) Postmodernist poetry which pose a special challenge or difficulty for students, readers, and instructors. The assumption here is that Postmodernist poetry, due to a noticeable lack of awareness on the part of students and readers of its characteristics, is made more difficult to read, understand, and appreciate than both traditional and Modernist poetry. An apt familiarity therefore with such characteristics makes the reading and teaching of Postmodernist poetry both less difficult and more fun. The characteristics, as I shall show, include deceptive simplicity, suggestiveness, infinity of meanings, fragmentation, advocacy of revisionism, and playfulness. Throughout, I shall provide examples from poems written in the second half of the twentieth century to support my contention.
