This paper examines features of the influence of the French writer Albert
Camus on the works of Kuwaiti writer Ismail Fahad Ismail, represented by "the
Quatrain of the illuminating marshes" using the french method in comparison.
This influence is manifested especially in depicting personalities, and in the
intellectual vision, and in certain conditions, theme and styles. And Ismail Fahad
Ismail has interacted in his youth with aesthetic and intellectual ideas of Camus
when he was searching for an identity of ideological belonging and was
suffering from psychological frustration as a result of other people's suspicion on
his patriotic belonging.
The paper concludes that Ismail Fahad Ismail was lacking original aesthetic
and itellectual vision in "the Quatrain of the illuminating marshes", but was
emulating excellently elements of that vision.
