POETRY OF KHALIL HAWI AS PHILOSOPHY OF CULTURE / POEZIJA HALILA HAVIJA KAO FILOZOFIJA KULTURE
This paper analyses the poetry of Khalil Havi, one of the most prominent contemporary poets of the Arab world. The Arab culture reform is considered the central idea of Havi’s poetry. This idea is depicted through the poetic reactivation of the Tammuzian myth, the resemantization of Sindbad's travels, intertextuality with the poetry of T.S. Eliott and ultimately through the bridge symbol as the most important motif through which Havi speaks of (im)possibilities of transcultural openness and absolute freedom.
