Dr. Jawdat Fakhr El-Din is a Lebanese who studied both science and literature. He earned a master’s degree in physics before going on to earn a doctorate in Arabic literature. He taught physics and co-wrote several dictionaries. He has been a professor of literature and criticism at Lebanese University’s Faculty of Arts since 1985. Fakhruddin’s research and poems have appeared in numerous Arab newspapers and magazines. He has also written and published poetry and literary works such as : “أوهام ريفية”، “أنا أقصر عن حبك”، “للرؤية وقت”، “قصائد خائفة”.

When his soul left his body and this world, he left a house for poetry, a place for his things, and walls where the poetry he loved would remain. The Bahraini poet Ibrahim Al Arrayed, and all those who (followed) him in his literary journey and translated works, were retained by the Sheikh Ebrahim bin Mohammed Al Khalifa Centre for Culture and Research in his city which he belonged, Manama. For it was the house of fame, as the first among the homes of cultural centers outside the city of Muharraq.
