Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Muhammed al-Maghut (1934- April 3, 2006) was a Syrian writer and poet. He was born in Salamiya, Syria in an Ismaili family. Muhammad Maghout was credited as the father of the Arabic free verse poetry, liberatng the Arabic poems from the traditional form and revolutionizing the structure of the poem. He wrote for theater, TV and cinema. Maghut's work combined satire with descriptions of social misery and malaise, illustrating what he viewed as an ethical decline among rulers in the region. He co-operated with Syrian actors Dureid Lahham and Nihad Qal'i to produce some of the region's most popular and acclaimed theatrical works, such as Kasak ya Watan (Toast to the homeland) and Ghorbeh (Estrangement). Al-Maghut was also known for his book "I will betray my homeland," a collection of essays. Al-Maghut died at the age of 72 in April 2006.
