Hassan Al-Basri Prose-Phonological Study

Abstract

This present paper investigates the aesthetic aspects of rhythm in prose texts that were written by Hassan Al-Basri. The study uncovers the units resulting out of the acoustic resonants that bear the stylistic features in the analysed prose texts. Selective appraoch of samples has been followed in order to ward off the recurrency and prolonging.The study defines rhythm as a recurrent sequence between sound and silent, light and dark, motion and Quiesence, strength and weakness, pressure and softness, longness and shortness...etc. Thus it is a relation between part and whole, between part and other parts in the artistic work. All this to be in a systemic and dynamic frame in the artistic form.Finally the results of the study were put forward.
