Abstract

The article deals with one of the most famous short-lived journals published prior to World War II in Egypt, Apollo, entirely devoted to Arabic literature and the arts, and particularly to poetry. The Apollo society, which was created alongside the Apollo journal, with the general aim of promoting the cause of literature and co-operation between writers both within and outside Egypt, is also analized by the Author, who highlights how Apollo gave importance to co-operation between writers who did not necessarily hold the same ideas or objectives. He particularly analizes the boldness and broad-mindedness of the Apollo group's mission, based on a conviction of the essentially multi-cultural nature of the future of Arabic literature.
