Hovering over the peak of imagery in Kurdish poetry, Sherko Bekas has presented several great literary works where he has created plenty of marvelous scenes with a transcendent range of imagination. The poet's thought and imagination have overpassed the conventional borders of contemporary literature, creating an image from any ordinary scene in life or the society that is exemplary of literary originality and creativity. Defamiliarization is an extensive field in his art and poetry, and he has been highly skillful in a branch thereof known as personification, where his thought and imagination have tremendously mounted to create artistic sceneries. This descriptive-analytical research seeks to investigate the personification technique in Sherko's poetry, and analyzes its variety of aspects and levels. He has once promoted an animate up to the level of a human being, recreated a non-animate as man, or provided part of a non-animate with personality and therefore activity. Based on this research, however, the most significant aspect of personification in Sherko's poetry is that once he has personified something, he has let it overpass the conventional borders of literature, granting it a particular characteristic beyond the ordinary conditions of a human being. Thus, the peak of the poet's art and creativity can be found in this field.
