This research entitled "Recalling Characters in the Poetry of A-Sharif A-Radi" illustrates how the poet uses this phenomenon in his poetry and sheds the light on the most prominent figures he invokes in his poetry. In addition, this research examines the factors that led the poet to recall these specific characters. In a nutshell, this research is divided into a preface and four chapters. The preface highlights the internal relationship within the creativity trilogy: the creative mind, the text and the recipient. It also refers to the concept of recalling characters briefly. Moreover, the first chapter is dedicated to explain recalling historical figures in A-Radi’s poetry, the second one discusses religious characters invoking, the third one examines literary figures recalling, and the fourth chapter analyzes invoking women characters. Finally, the research concludes that the poet has recalled various characters from different contexts: historical, religious, and literary among which women have a dominant presence. It is evident, though, that there is a strong connection between the poet’s choice of the recalled (invoked) figures from one side, and the poet’s psychology or attitudes that are rooted in his excessive pride in his honorable lineage and his admiration of the unique qualities and exceptional poetic abilities that distinguish him from other people and make him stand out.
