With a mixture of nationalist, communist, and socialist voices, Nazareth used to be a venue in which to speak about redemption through Arab nationalism or communist internationalism. This chapter focuses on how Arabic poetry in general and Palestinian poetry in particular is secularized and how modern Arab poets such as Edmoun Shehadeh, Ahmad Kiwan, 'Abd al- Karim Abu Khashan, Muhammad al-Batrawi, and Ahmad Dahbour push secularism into the Arab literary imagination. Shehadeh's road to his free verse poetry was paved by Iraqi poets such as Nazik al-Mala'ika and Badr Shakir al-Sayyab. Kiwan was dismayed by the Palestinian and Arabic poetry scene.

Keywords:   nationalism, Arabic poetry, Palestinian poetry, poets, secularism, free verse, Edmoun Shehadeh, Ahmad Kiwan, Muhammad al-Batrawi, Ahmad Dahbour
