Full Text PDF


It is not an easy task to learn complicated political and social situation of Abbasid history and its impact on the behavior of kingdom and ruling classes. Prince Abdullah ibn Moataz is a poet and author and one-night king who entered poetry and literature by autocracy spirit. There are issues like description, wine, glory, pray and epics in his poets, his book namely Al-Badie (Niche) and his proses. He is a poet born in political strangulation and observed assigning and withdrawing frequent Abbasid rulers by Turk commanders including the murderer of his father. Then, by his mother’s ingenuity, he resorted to poetry and literature. He never forgot these bitter memories. However, it was not only influential in his one-day administration, but also it caused his homicide like previous Caliphs. In present paper, in terms of ibn Moataz’s autocratic basis is technically analyzed by his complete poetical works. Also his Shahnameh – type approach on some poetical themes such as description, wine, lyric poem and hunting are decoded. In terms of high social basis in poetical themes and in ibn Moataz’s books, one can learn a right approach on political and social conditions of Abbasid age generally and the atmosphere of Abbasid royal court particularly.
