I propose to write a book that will use an approach I describe as "Comparative Modernism" to expand the study of metapoesis to include the Abbasid age in Arabic literature (8th and 9th century), a phase of poetic turmoil in which a new poetic taste and new poetic standards were set. The book will begin by drawing on work on metapoesis and twentieth century modernism in general and will then focus on the Free Verse movement in Arabic poetry as a self-conscious meta-poetic project. Using the Free Verse experience as a backdrop, my study will expand its use of the term metapoesis to explore similar meta-poetic attitudes of Abbasid modernist poets (muhdathun), who not only explained and commented on the inherited poetic forms but, more importantly, helped revolutionize them. This will be the only work in the field which treats both classical and modern Arabic poetry within a contemporary theoretical framework.
