Summary/Abstract: This research tackles the poetic tales in Ahmed Shawki’s poetry in terms of reception theory. This theory comprises readers’ perception of literary texts. One of the objectives of this theoretical approach is to examine the horizon of expectation of the reader, either explicit or implied. We have studied the horizon of expectation of the explicit reader in the following points: Rhythmic expectation, Linguistic expectation, and Dramatic expectation. We have also got to know the aesthetic distance between the literary text in anecdotes and explicit reader. We have examined the hidden references to the implied reader in terms of the social and political reality in poetic tales. Then we have got to know the anecdotes in deep linguistic structure of the signs of the implicit reader capable of signing the literary text. We hope this study accomplish important results including the relationship between the reader and the text.
