Quranic quotation: textual, indicative, transformational, referential


The researcher here attempts to address the phenomenon of Quranic quotations in the poetry of blind poets in Andalusian literature. Among the collections of blind poets are the collection of Yahya ibn Huthayl al-Qurtubi, Abu al-Hasan al-Hasri al-Qairawani, al-A'ma al-Tatili, Ibn Jabir al-Andalusi al-Dhiri and others. These blind poets in Andalusia realize and infer this phenomenon in their poetry, and the extent of their influence, attachment, and connection to the words of the Holy Quran, which they invoked in their poems to enrich their poetic texts with beauty and meaning. Therefore, this research came to identify different patterns of quotation, where this identification comes through several axes that the poet takes as a means to express what is going on in his mind. The quotation is divided into: textual quotation, indicative quotation, transformational quotation, and referential quotation.

     The researcher also concluded the extent of their influence by this great heritage (the Holy Quran), which is considered the basic pillar for establishing intertextual relationships. It is also an important source of literary inspiration for poets. Therefore, religious texts represent the most sacred reference among other references, because the religious heritage is a tributary of the literary tributaries that accompany the poet on the long journey in the field of creativity. The poet enhances his memory with innovative connotations and meanings from the religious heritage, as contained in the Holy Quran, with its fertility, generosity, stories, ideas, and lessons, and its eloquence and miraculous style, as it is the word of God Almighty. Therefore, its meanings have become a legacy for the Arab poet, in addition to the literary and artistic quality that distinguishes the religious and Quranic discourse.
