‘Ali Maḥmūd Ṭāhā (Arabic: علي محمود طه‎‎) (1901–1949) was an Egyptian romantic poet.[1] He has been called several nicknames, such as: The Engineer and The Lost Sailor.[1]

Nevertheless, Taha was not as immersed in romanticism as Ibrahim Nagi and Mohammad al-Hamshari.[1]

Furthermore, Taha's poets were politically-colored, but even provocative and patriotic, despite his death, which was before the 23rd-of-July Revolution.

Early life[edit]

Taha was born to a family of the middle-class in Mansoura, in Delta, Egypt.[1]
