Abstract:   (2340 Views)
Adonis’ poem“Tahavolat al-‘asheq” borrows from multiple theological and mystical texts and focuses on the encounter between tradition and modernity. This encounter formulatesa new concept of “surrealistic mysticism.” This paper studies different conceptual aspects of surreal mysticism in Adonis’ poem. The study shows that the embedded confrontation of different texts in this poem represents the formation of a modern thinking that transforms the lover from a spiritual essence to the embodiment of carnalinstincts in the modern world and reduces human to a sensual being by depriving him from the divine elements of nature and mysterious qualities.
