Al-Bardouni2

The Poetry and Literature Icon, he was known as “The Seer Observer”. He had a deep insight through which he recounted the reality with the impartiality that preceded his time.  And the ugliest victory … is the victory of the powerful without Apprehend…  but apprehend how much they sold … and how much they earned.

Written by the poet and literary critic, historian, and teacher … Abdullah Saleh Hassan Al-Shahf Al-Baradouni… The prolific poet was born in 1929 in the village of Baradon in Dhamar Province. He lost his sight at the age of six because of smallpox disease, but he emerged among the best contemporary poets in Yemen and the Arab world for being one of the conservatives of the Arabic poem.

He completed the memorization of the Quran in his childhood and was imprisoned in the era of Imam Ahmad Hamid Al-Din because of his struggle against reactionary and dictatorship. His books dealt with political issues related to his country, most notably the conflict between the republican and monarchical regime that fell after the revolution of 26 September 1962. His poems tended to be ridicule and elegiac, and he relied on Classical Arabic for most of his work.

Of his poetical works are “Land Of Balqis”, “In The Way Of Dawn” and “The City of Tomorrow” among other rich literacy work.

The iconic poet Abdullah Saleh Hassan Al-Baradouni died on August 30, 1999. May God’s mercy be upon him.

Yemen used to be, and as such were our poets.
