Determination of Intertextuality in Arabic Criticism: Saadi Yousef’s Mobile Model as an Example
This essay traces the rise of intertextuality among modern Arab critics all the way back to its origins in Western critical theory. It also investigates the concept that the poetry of modern Iraqi poet Saadi Yousef contains a unique mythological intertextuality. His mythological intertextuality is reflected in his poetry’s structure and subject. Saadi enriches ancient Iraqi mythology while applying the device of intertextuality. Saadi’s use of this approach will be referred to as “the intertextuality of the mobile model” in this essay, which will explore the renowned Babylonian epic known as the Gilgamesh Epic. Unlike other types of intertextuality, this one uses three axes to connect the past text, which is the myth, and the present text, which is the poetry. The first axis entails the use of a past myth to serve present aims; the second axis implies the use of a past myth to interpret the present; and the third axis entails the use of the present to influence the present text.
The goal is to demonstrate the benefits of past tales and processes used by Saadi Yousef, as well as to investigate the goals that drove the poet to chose one of the oldest books ever written.
