عنوان مقاله [English]
Ebrahim Nasrallah is the most remarkable Palestinian poet who has used symbols and sign language to write poems in favor of Palestinians and in objection to the arrogance and autarchy of the intervening forces as well as the occupation regime. Two of his works are “Fazihat-ol-Sa’lab” and “Na’man Yestared-ol-Looneh”, which include his most famous poems in criticism of war and colonialists’ injustice and oppression. In addition, his poems that invite Palestinians to fight and resistance are full of symbols and symptoms. This study is done by a descriptive-analytic method and aims to discover the hidden secrets of images as encoded on the covers of these two anthologies. An attempt is also made to survey the drawn images as meta-contextual concepts based on the semiotic theory. The results show that the studied images have a complete coherence with the content and the main idea of the works, and the imaginative and semiotic codes within these works are consistent with the main goal of the author and the content. In addition, the visual features including colors, lines, textures, spaces and shapes play important roles in the coordination between the designs and the meanings of the poems. This is suggestive of the poet's knowledge of visual perception. To design the covers of both books, the author has used spectral colors, whereas the designs in the subdivisions of "Na’man Yestared-Al-Looneh" benefit from a combination of white, black and gray spaces.
