ABSTRACT
The article discusses the gap between language and experience in the works of modern Arab poets. The author explores the aims of modernist Arab poets. One of these aims is to demonstrate how their poetic works unremittingly endeavor to eradicate or conceal the gap between language and the reality it purports to embody. He seeks to delineate a poet's conception of the poetic quandary which confronts every modernist poet or author. Moreover, the author explains the notion of silence as a powerful tool which best articulates the intensity of the personal emotions.
