All those civilizations have had an impact on the social structure of Morocco. It conceived various forms of beliefs, from paganism, Judaism, and Christianity to Islam. The production of Moroccan literature has continued to grow and diversify. To the traditional genres poetry, essays, and historiography have been added forms inspired by Middle Eastern and Western literary models.
