Karakteristik Puisi Arab
Baru dari Segi Bentuk (Mabna) (Ahmad Fuad Effendy)
Abstract: Arabic poetry whose long history dates back to one and a half centuries
before the rise of Islam did not undergo significant transformation until the twentieth century. The transfornnation causes
dramatic changes in the aesthetic paradigm, which in traditional poetry was limited to wazan (rhythmical patterns) and monotonous
qafyah (rhyme at the end of every couplet). The changes in new Arabic poetry include the following aspects: (a) the change
in poetic frame from a couplet into lines and then into sentences; (b) the change in wazan or basic rhythmical patterns from
bahr into tafilah, opening up the possibility for greater variation for aesthetic expressions; (c) greater attention given
to two types of wazan, i.e., metrical patterns and rhythm, (d) redefinition of qafyah, yielding variations known as mutarawihah,
mutawaliayah, and hurrah; and (e) the use of ramz or symbols as new models for poetic expressions.
