ABSTRACT
Ahmad al-Shariff was born in Tripoli, Region in Libya when it was under Ottoman reign. He closely witnessed the Italian invasion and the liberation of his country from them. He also took part in the struggle for liberation, and he was very happy when his country finally became independent. He had hopes that the Ottoman rule would regain its power; however, when his hopes failed, he experienced the joy of witnessing that his country entered the 20th century as an independent Arabic state. When he died, he left behind a life dedicated to his country and its youth, 51 years of service in legislation and a great number of poems waiting for compilation. In this respect, he was an important figure not only in Libyan literary and poetic history, but also in Arabic poetic history.
