ABSTRACT
This study has reviewed, the renovation movement in Arabic poetry ever since it was started by Mahmoud Sami al--Baroudi until the days the free verse movement as manifested in the poetry of Nazek al--Mela'ika, Badr Shaker al--Sayyâb, and Abdul wahhâb al-Bayyâtî. The study also pointed to the repercussions of Napoleon's campaign against the Arab region because it showed what extent this area was deeply sinking in backwardness, further it-- threw light on the need for renovation even if it came from the west. Modern poets believed that, it was necessary to regain firstly the language and rhetoric of writers and poets of Abbasid period to get rid of weakness in the poetry. Then, once language has got back its vividness and strength, it was necessary to help new poetry to be a child of a new age. Adventures and visits to unknown are as were necessary in the fields of structure, rhyme, rhythm and subject, which ancient poetry left one by one. When Jubran's unique experience arrived, it was supported by the Appolo and the Diwan Group's effort and by the individual cooperations of the Arab poets living in different places of Arab world.
