Is there an established term in Arabic for “poetic license”? I know the saying يحق للشاعر ما لا يحق لغيره, which describes the phenomenon perfectly, but is there an actual term that could be used in sentences like “I don’t want to exercise too much poetic license” or “This would only be used as poetic license”?
