Book Description
Gender, sex and the city explores the cosmopolitan sensibilities of urdu poetry written in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, especially in the city of lucknow, which was the centre of a flourishing indo-persian culture. Through its ground-breaking analysis , it demonstrates how rekhti (a type of urdu poetry whose distinguishing features are a female speaker and a focus on women's lives) and to some degree, non-mystical rekhta (mainstream urdu poetry with a male speaker), for the first time in urdu represent women ( both of conventional families and courtesan households)as important shapers of urban culture, especially urban speech.
