There is no doubt that (existentialism) represents a doctrine and a stand-alone philosophy known to the human world in general and the literary world in particular, as a result of the tremendous events that have gripped it during the past decades, along with a lot of other criticism and literature . This philosophy constituted a clear literary phenomenon more than a religious doctrine, as it took a very wide space from the literary text space, especially the modern poetic text, but even the fictional and fictional text , until this philosophy became necessary for many modern and contemporary poets , and a phenomenon that dominates their texts, especially Poeticism and among those poets, the poet Salah Faiq, who employed the joints of this existential philosophy in his poetic prose texts .He tried to move away from the issue of religious employment in his poems, moving towards addressing the political, social and economic aspects through the cover of this new literary philosophy. This poetic method we consider new in the world of contemporary literature as the poet invokes two opposing means in his poetic text, one negative and the other bearing positive qualities in order to try to uncover The negative societal aspects and finding effective solutions to them are all adopted by the contemporary poetic text made by the poet Salah Faiq. The axes of this research revolved around these prominent issues as they represented the most prominent poetic phenomenon in Salah Faeq’s poetry .
