This study tries to shed light on the concept of loss and its social and political references and the extent of the impact of those references in promoting the feeling of loss, the loss of self, freedom, dreams, and the human essence. The study deals with the phenomenon of loss in a critical period in the history of contemporary Iraqi poetry; namely, the era of the 1990s because its texts were issued in light of a turbulent reality and a critical stage in which Iraq witnessed exceptional situations, including the economic blockade, and the repercussions of wars on the self and society together, in addition to the nature of society and its customs and traditions and their role in many issues, including the issue of women and their relationship with themselves and with society.
