Abdel Rahman el-Abnudi (Arabic: عبد الرحمن الأبنودى) (born 1938) is a popular Egyptian poet, and more recently a children's books writer. He is one of a generation of poets who wrote their work in the Egyptian dialect rather than in Classical Arabic, the standard literary language. This literary stance was associated with a militant political engagement: Abnudi and other writers of this school sought to make their literary production part of the process of development and movement towards popular democracy in Egypt. He was formerly the husband of short movie director Attiyat El Abnoudy, but, presently married to Nehal Kamal and is the father of two children, Nour and Aya.
