Name Professor Course Date Poetry is one of the significant components of literature that makes use of imagination and emotional response to create awareness and to pass the theoretical message intended by the author to the audience. The emotional response in this case is achieved through the kind of language chosen that focuses on meaning rhythm and sound pattern in poetry. Some of the common poetic devices that are employed in poetry to bring out the intended themes are rhythm onomatopoeia and assonance. Therefore this piece of work is going to explore the thematic concern in Rumi`s or Rubia poems and also Layla and Majnun collection of poems. In these two collections of poetry work the poems seemed to be more love centered despite the fact that their authors existed at different times in history and they also had different background However they both give a reflection of the them listened in delight and so similar were the two voices that they sounded like a single chant. Born of pain and longing their song had the power to break the unhappiness of the world.”( HYPERLINK "www.goodreads.com Nizami Ganjavi).This quotes shows the long journey of love they endured together. Therefore as indicated in the above anthologies from both Rumi and Rubia and Lyla and Majnun the poets have love as their central theme although they all deal with different aspects in love that distinguish the two categories from each other. These categories are still relevant in our today’s society because they emphasize of individuals love and the love for creator which are crucial aspects of human beings.

This option requires you to identify a question (or issue) that has seemed important to you in the poems, stories and art that we have studied and use any two of these materials to explain, explore and enter deeply into the question and your perceptions or claims about it. Each of the collections of Andalusian poetry and Rumi’s or Rabia’s poems and “Layla and Majnun” count as one kind of material each. Include at least two poems from each of the collections. Make sure that your topic is focused, and not broad or general -- e.g rather than "the poems are about love," build a topic around some specific aspect of love or loss or longing that you find interesting.
