Abstract

Cultural criticism is one of the literary phenomena that characterized modern Arab literature, as its appearance was coupled with modern literary renaissance, and it occupies a wide area in modern Arab poetry.

The most important thing that distinguishes this kind of poetry is the spirit of modernity, as it expresses the suffering of people, its concerns after what was previously poetry captive to the past, and the tradition that makes it unrelated to its era.

Cultural criticism is important for expressing the positives or exposing the negatives for themselves. Rather, it invests in the following considerations related to the vision of man and with him the culture of those positives or negatives and the criterion for classifying them in this or that box. For this he seeks to present the possibilities available, and to discover the boundaries that produce meanings or receive connotations for practices in cultural contexts.

The interest of cultural criticism is highlighted through the study procedures in which it uses methods of induction, analysis and interpretation. It is worth noting that the field of cultural criticism intersects with the so-called cultural studies that include the study of elite, folk and subcultural cultures, ideologies, literature, and science of science, social movements, daily life, the media, and philosophical and social theories and the like. And take all of that tools for analysis and interpretation without the domination of one of the rest of them, or the deliberate exclusion of some of them.
