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.
