Temporal space, pre-Islamic poetry, night, visions, psychological exhaustion


This study aims to explain the temporal space of the night and its impact on the poets of Bani Asad, and how its meanings varied and differed for them through the difference in its impact on them and the psychological impact it left on them, and how the night, despite being equal in length, was different for them, as some of them complained about its length and heaviness, and some of them cried because of Its shortness and quick salvation, for the night in which the poets sang and flirted with their beloved ones and depicted the gatherings of their loved ones, their pleasures and their wines, is the same night that another group of poets complained about, and in which they cried over the separation of their loved ones and their longing for them. Likewise, the night was a safety for the fearful through their concealment from the eyes of the enemy, and the irony is that in Time itself was a factor and a source of fear through its enveloping darkness things and prevents vision. Likewise, the night was a stage for displaying generosity and courage. Therefore, the research was divided into three axes. The first axis dealt with (the concept of the temporal space of the night), and the second axis shed light on (the psychological impact) of the Bani Asad poets. As for the third and final axis, we dealt with (the social impact). And from God, success.
