Intertextuality between T. S. Eliot’s “The Waste Land” And Mahmoud Darwish’s “The Land’s Poem” (Published)

This paper aims at investigating the intertextuality between T.S. Eliot’s “The Waste Land” and Mahmoud Darwish’s “The Land’s Poem”. The previous literature in the field yields a lack of employing the focal term in this article, intertextuality, in comparing the impact of Eliot on Darwish. Moreover, the earlier attempts have focused on other poems by the two writers. Besides, this article is limited to the employment of allusion as a type of intertextuality. It is found out that Darwish has been successful in employing intertextual allusions from Eliot’s Land into his Land retaining his own theme and style in his prosperous poem. The most highlighted intertextual allusions in Eliot’s impact on Darwish are the cultural, religious, and the literary, and all observe the contextual differences.
