Description Alexandrian Seashells is a poetic collection of Mona Latif-Ghattas, where we try to study the dream image of the sea; poet recounts her memories of youth, stranded as seashells on the beach. Hypotyposis is the best figure of speech that reflects poetic hallucinated impulses, symbolic elusive relationships or inexpressible feelings. Essentially descriptive, this figure is based on the observation of feelings, sensations or elusive impressions. It transmits the fleeting thoughts by its dynamic appearance. The multiple facets of hypotyposis, spread through the space-time items, include figures attached either to land, desert, beaches or fluid figures that derive their value from the sea. The hypotyposis is able to connect the lived memories with the emotional effect produced by the moment.
Écailles Alexandrines, recueil poétique de Mona Latif-Ghattas, où l’on tente d’étudier l’image onirique de la mer; la poétesse y retrace ses souvenirs de jeunesse, ramassés comme des coquillages échoués sur les plages. L’hypotypose est la meilleure figure qui reflète les élans poétiques hallucinés, les rapports symboliques qui soulignent l’inexprimable. Essentiellement descriptive, elle se fonde sur l’observation des sentiments, des sensations ou des impressions mobiles et changeants. Les multiples facettes de l’hypotypose se répandent à travers les éléments spatiaux, regroupant les figures attachées soit à la terre, au désert, aux plages ou les figures fluides. L’hypotypose tresse les souvenirs vécus avec les états d’âme produits par l’effet du moment.
