Contemporary Arab Feminine Poetry

Lebanese American University

Abstract


Feminine poetry is not a product of our age. Women poets appeared in ancient as well as in modern times. The Ancient Greeks and Hebrews produced women poets and those who practised certain arts akin to poetry: the priestesses and the prophetesses. Arabic literature counts at least 200 women poets in pre· lslamic and Islamic periods, but unfortunately most of their poetry has been lost.
