Abstract

The king Amr Ibn Hind ruled the state of Manathira about 8ne and half decade. The poets had had a strong relationship with him. They were his drinking companions. They used to betake his court to obtain his grants or to ask him for the requirements of their own tribes. The king used to care for them. This study is aiming at throwing some light on the image of the king Amr b. Hind as reflected in the poems of his court poets. Hence, to clear out this image, three subjects of these poems will be tackled which are: eulogy, defamatory, threat and inflammatory. In conclusion the image of the king was very clear in the poems of the poets, but differs widely from one subject of the poems to another. He is noble lord in the panigrical poems. In defamatory poems, he is faithless and perfidious. In the threat and inflammatory poems, he is terrible and dreadful.
