English Abstract

The subjects of women and love are not only tightly related together but also one of the most influential themes in literature.

Women have always been depicted as dominated by masculinity and restricted by social customs and traditions.

Still, poetry and poets responded to their oppression in many ways, criticizing and spreading awareness to draw a new image of women and encourage them to rebel against inequality and gender discrimination.

Qabbani and Hardy lived in restrictive societies for women and love.

Both of them lost their wives suddenly and had a difficult time coping with this loss, but while Hardy went with vague and implicit expressions, and expressed his feelings of loss with regret and nostalgia, which make the tone of his love poems melancholic and gloomy, Qabbani after the death of his sister and beloved wife, wrote one of his most unforgettable poems entitled ‘Balqees,’ in which he voiced his bold views of love and women, using sensational language full of rebellious expressions to invoke women to call out for their freedom.
