The poet or the narrator in Leigh Hunt’s poem ‘Abou Ben Adhem’ has shown great admiration and respect for the protagonist. In fact, he has used a parenthesis “may his tribe increase!” within brackets in the very first line as a gesture to cast his blessings on Abou and to declare that this man is indeed worth remembering for generations to come.

Poet has a great respect towards Abou Ben Adhem and his work. The poet puts the words, “may his tribe increase” in the brackets as a silent wish that people like Ben Adhem continue to be in a large number as his successors are blessed by the poet
