Insistence in The Pre-Islamic Poetry A Study of Motives and Causes
Insistence and determination are main principles. They can be keys to success in life. Their absence causes a lack in many related values and manners. Therefore, pre-Islamic poets consistently discuss the principles of insistence. They are self-made, insistent on educational, social, political, economic and warfare positive life aspects. Therefore, poets gave some advice and guidance stressing virtues such as kindness, great hospitality and self-preservation even if these principles required leaving the tribe and relatives such as the lovers and family to maintain a social rank and value. Therefore, these ambitions can only be achieved and realized by patience and flexibility. In the pre-Islamic era, personality is valued in terms of rank, value, flourishing, vanity, and pride and dignity.
