Abstract: Satirical poetry is a technique that has always been a concomitant part of poetry. Its objective is to belittle the status and prestige of the one who is being subjected to ridicule. Satirical poetry is a way to decry and misrepresent someone, a community, or an aspect of life. Satirical poetry represents the implications of human circumstances and pertinence. It is the interactions stemming from the axiom of human existence reflecting conflict and struggle manifested in different forms. Satirical poetry is a long-established and original form of poetry in Arabic language. A group of literary scholars in any nation resorts to this type of poetry. They express their feelings and thoughts in this style of poetry as time and place call for. This study examines different styles of satirical poetry in Arabic language to reveal the motivations and objectives of the poets. The purpose of this study is to discover whether satirical poetry was a technique adapted by some poets as a profession or it was an inner propensity in certain individuals who have gone to the extreme in its development. A number of poets were considered and Hatieh was selected for this study as a well known satirical poet.
