The Omar Abu Risha Festival concluded the “Mustafa Badawi” session with discussions on the connotations of women, people and the sea, and poetic images in Mustafa Badawi’s poetic works.
At the beginning of the two sessions of the festival, which was held at the Aziziyah Cultural Center, the writer Fayez Al-Daya read a number of poems by Mustafa Badawi.
And Muhammad Sumaya, head of the Intellectual Property Protection Department in the Directorate of Culture, said in a statement to SANA reporter, that his participation focused on women in the Diwan of “Neglected Papers,” noting that poetry in the Badawi poet’s perspective is a mirror that reflects existence, and it is a revelation and an art of wonder, which sometimes flows like a smooth stream. And when it erupts like a wave, and that the poet is considered a pioneer of rooting and renewal, he composed the ta'filah poem before al-Sayyab and Nazik al-Malaika.
The writer Ghalia Khoja pointed out that her participation is related to presenting a literary reading of the book “Back to My Childhood” focusing on the human axis, how the ego’s conscience is formed and branched within it, and how it turned into dualities and then into a collective state, and the dramatic situation that rises in this conflict.
Maysoon Al-Shawa presented a literary study that focused on the poetic images included in the Diwan “Tired Face of Mirrors”.
In turn, Dr. Ratiba presented a critical reading site, denoting the sea in three collections of Badawi poet: “The Fifth Dimension, Tired Face of Mirrors, and Returning from Childhood,” referring to the poet’s culture and knowledge.
In his testimony, which he gave at the end of the festival, the writer Osama Maraachli indicated that he had a close personal relationship with the poet. He had known him since the early sixties in Beirut.
