Muhammad Maghut, a Syrian poet born in Salamiya, is widely credited with introducing free-verse into Arabic poetry. He published his first collection, Huzn fi daw’ al-qamar (Sorrow in Moonlight), in 1959, which was followed by several other collections, most famously Al-farah laysa mihnati (Happiness Is not my Profession) in 1970.
