The poet's attitudes, towards the events of his era, affected, appositively or negatively, the technical level of his poetic productivity because man, affected by his intellectual and tribal tendency and belongingness, keeps no fixed status and that affect his behavior and the nature of his language.
The poet Bisher bin Khazim al-Asadi is one of the poets whose poetry was affected clearly by their attitudes towards one issue which is the issue of al-No'man bin al-Mundhir who took off robe and honor for Aws bin Harith al-Ta'i, the matter that made the other tribes' chiefs envy him and urged the poet Bisher to satirize him. He satirized him severely and described him with characteristics that the Arab man disdain, this step affected his poetry negatively and represented a sign of a technical falling down that he could not avoid till he changed his mind and attitude towards Aws and his folk due to the wisdom of Aws' mother who advised her son to be gentle with the poet when he being able to punish him. Hence, he wrote the poems, by which he praised Aws and his tribe, which we call "the correction poems" that referred to the highness of the poet's soul after its falling down. This highness affected his poetry's language and image where he reformed the image of Aws and his folk, according to their reality and social position that he deformed by his false satire. He followed the meaning of his satire to contradict them one by one, and purify himself of prejudice to elevate his style as he elevated his soul.
