Nizar Qabbani, Arab Poet and Author Nizar Qabbani, was born in Damascus on March 21, 1923 and began writing poetry in 1944, just one year before he began his Syrian diplomatic career that he later abandoned for his greater love, poetry. His literary works consisted of two dozen volumes of poetry and regular articles in the Arabic-language newspaper Al Hayat. Qabbani was revered by generations of Arabs for his sensual and romantic verse where it seemed that women were his main theme and inspiration. His poetry uses everyday language. Gamal el-Ghitanti, the Egyptian novelist and editor of the weekly News of Literature, praised Qabbani as having been “by any measure, a great Arab poet who made a big effort to make his poetry understandable to all people and not only to the elite.” ....................................

Hi, I happen to know one Arabic writer Naguib Mahfouz. he is a Egyptian writer who won Nobel Prize for Literature. Palace Walk, Palace of Desire, and Sugar Street are famous works from him. I have read some of his short stories(in english) and find his writing is very deep and penetrating.
