It was attended by a number of lecturers and students. It included a lecture delivered by Dr  Haider Jebur al-Khuzaai, in which he talked about the theory of modern critical intertextuality and its manifestations in poetry of the Iraqi poet, Badr Shakir al-Sayyab, and the Irish poet, William Butler Yeats, through mythology and symbolism as forms of intertextuality. Al-Khuzaai showed that intertextuality in the poetry of Siyab focuses on diascussing and analyzing al-Sayyab’s poetic works and his employment of legendary and symbolic intertextuality in his poetic works as a strategy for achieving his national and political purposes. It is noteworthy that al-Sayyab is the first who established the prinsiples of modernity in Arab poetry via his eloquence and use of myth, metaphor, depiction and symbolism.
