This component is more significant in the relationship between the humanities in general and history in particular with literature. This paper seeks to illustrate this convergence by comparing the metaphorical "Mass City" in the context of history and mythology.
The story of the city of the Mass is one of the tales quoted in thousand and One Nights and in addition to some of the works of Arab geographers, it also comes as a true historical text. The mission of Musa Ben Nassir to Africa, besides introducing historical events into the world of legends, also makes him a legendary figure. That's why he has two personality dimensions: Historical and legendary. As for the city of Mass, it is possible to make such an image. It is certain that every narrative and historical personality does not enter the legendary area. Therefore, the study intends to extract the legendary signs of the historical plan of the Moses mission to conquer the Maghreb and Andalusian lands, and examine it in the narrative of the city of Mass in one thousand and one nights. the result shows a series of factors such as the distinguished personality of Moses, the pretentiousness of the Maghreb and Andalusia, successive conquests and countless victories of spoils has changed the event and transmitted it quickly from the historical text to the legendary text. The method used in this descriptive-analytic study is based on the American Comparative Literature School.
