English Abstract

The study deals with two famous romantic poets: W.

Blake, the English(1757-1827), and Jebran Khalil Jebran (1883- 1931, the Arab one who has been undoubtedly motivated by Blake's vision and mysticism.

Indeed, the study sheds light mainly on two symbolic terms of their poems, "The lamb" by Blake and "The flute" by Jebran.

The Lamb refers to 'innocence' in Blake's poetry, whereas 'The 'Flute" means 'singing' in Jebran's poetry.

Tracing analytically their poetry, the study shows at last intertexual relation between their poetic views in order to understand nature, religion, and their relations with man's life.

Many clear examples are included too.
