ABSTRACT
The use of mythology in Contemporary Arabic Poetry first appeared as a result of the attempts to develop the contents of the Arabic Poetry towards the second half of the 19th century. The socio-politic developments in the Arabic world following the Second World War constitute a turning point in the Arabic Literature. The anger caused by the lost of some Arabic lands is especially reflected in the young poets. These poets consider the condition of Arabic world as a "death" state; however, they compare it to the death state of the nature which is always reborn. Consequently, a new movement called "Tammoz Poets" that connects the belief that the Arabic world will be reborn and the myths symbolizing the rebirth of nature in the Sumerian, Egyptian and Greek Mythologies is born and takes its name from the Sumerian Myth of Tammoz. This Poetry movement uses various myths in the poems and assigns new meanings to these old myths in order to affect people and to pass their intended messages, and uses various figures from the Arabic culture and folklore to create different symbols.
