Title : A stylistic approach to the Moallaca of Antarah ibn Shaddad al-Absi

Stylistics is said to be dead in the year sixty-nine nine hundred despite the attempts keep it alive. However, its openness to multiple disciplines such as psychology and phonetics enabled it to trespass the boundaries. Our selection of the Moaallaca of Antarah ibn Shaddad was deliberate so as to show the the ability of the poet to grab the reader's attention and And introduce him into a unique and wonderful world. One of the most important features of this Moaallaca is displaying the rhetorical, linguistic and cultural characteristics of the self and stirring the reader’s feelings by stimulating his own senses. Stylistics is therefore a practice and not a science, as we cannot approach the text stylistically with methodological rigor.
