Samuel Nagid was a famous Hebrew poet of the Middle Ages, as well a patron of many other poets, and was well known for his poetry. Eban says that the Nagid's influence was in that he established a new style of Hebrew poetry by applying aspects of Arabic poetry to biblical Hebrew. This unique application made Hebrew poetry access the major genres of Arabic poetry. He also wrote poetry in the battlefield. When he defeated the allied armies of Seville, Malaga and the Berbers on Sept. 8, 1047 at Ronda, he wrote in his Hebrew poem of gratitude for his deliverance: “A redemption which was like the mother of my other redemptions and they became to it as daughters.”His main poetic works include “Ben Tehillim” (Son of Psalms), “Ben Qoheleth” (Son of Ecclesiastes), and “Ben Mishlei” (Son of Proverbs), each of which imitates the “father work”. He founded the yeshiva that produced such brilliant scholars as Yitzhaq ibn Ghiath and Maimon ben Joseph, the father of Maimonides.
