Rihan AlMasaeed


This paper aims at exploring the effect of symmetrical patterns of sounds at the structural level in achieving harmony at the semantic level in a poetic text. This is done by pointing out the importance of rhyme, rhythm, meter, homophony etc and showing their aesthetic and semantic roles in a poem. The study begins with the central question: to what extent can the readers of a literary text exploit the different devices of achieving symmetrical sound patterns to explain the poetic, aesthetic, and semantic harmony within a text? The researcher took Nooneyat Abi Al Nawas as an example equipped with the principles of the reader’s response theory to provide a real analysis of the selected poetic text.
