Contemporary Arab women poets deal in their works with the tanatic subjects as a continuation of the old Arabic poetess Al-Khansa tradition. The death motifs in their poetry can be divided into the three groups. The first group consists of the motifs which exemplify the attitude of the individual towards herself which means the reflection on the nature of existence and the inevitability of the passing away and as a consequence resulting from it the attitudes towards own death. The second group embraces the threads characterized by the attitude of the individual towards the group. The authoress classified here the war motif and connected within it strongly the thread of the heroic death. There is also a third group which embraces the motifs of grief, sorrow and despair after the loss of the close one which represent the attitude of the individual towards the individual. These we can find mainly in the elegies.
