This essay aims to present a comparison between the two famous poets: Lord Byron the voice of Romanticism in English Literature, and 'Omar Ibn Abi Rabi'ah the unsurpassed of all 'ghazal' poets in Arabic Literature. Besides their similarities in character and personality, the essay focuses on their similarities as two romantic poets. Though the two poets were different in time. Place, culture and language, both share some characteristics such as nobility rank that both descended from aristocratic families and lived a pampered life that 'spoiled' them, both were of good looking and charming, loving and adventuring with 'Noble Dames' – married with Byron and unmarried with Umar, both have lameness. Moreover, both had the same end: the life of exile and death. It seems as if 'Umar's soul passed at death into Byron's body (transmigration). In their similarities, the two famous poets were true romanticists even as rebels; they were innovators of the genres of lyric/ghazal and satire which proves that the romantic spirit goes beyond time and place The essay deals with their love-affair` as followers of Beauty of "Noble Dames", and shows their common romantic features as singers of pain. Umar devoted his life as well as his property to praising and singing the charms of pretty women, and revealing in his poems his adventures with them. Like Byron, Umar has a rich poetic sensibility. He could depict scenes well, picture situations and give vivid descriptions of the charms and emotional reactions of the women who courted him. Both poets present themselves as true debauchers.
