بناءُ التشبيه في دِرْعيَّاتِ أبي العلاءِ المَعريِّ
This study dealt with the building of the Simile in Dar'iat Abi Alaa Al- Ma’arri. Dar'iat means Poems that describe the armor. It has been printed and attached to the divan of (Saqt Al- Zand), in which Al- Ma’arri describes the armor and its benefits. The importance of such theme is attributed to the quality of the literary material within the Second Abbasid era. Also, it refers to that Abi Al- Alaa Al- Ma’arri – Despite him being blind- has a special character in building of the Figure of speech. Although such divan is small in size, it considered to be a Fertile ground for study as the poetic text in it is full with the varied rhetoric secrets. The aim of this study is to apply this theoretical rhetoric lesson, as well as identify the elements of creativity in meanings building at Al- Ma’arri.
