Book Description
Here is a collection of informative and perceptive essays on some landmark figures of Urdu literature. Divided into three sections-poetry, fiction and drama, in that order-the galaxy is headed by Ghalib and Iqbal, the two fabled poets of Urdu. Flanking them are five outstanding modern poets, viz., Faiz, Sardar Jafri, Makhdoom Muhiuddin, Akhtarul Iman and Manibur Rehman. A general essay on the secular and humanist traditions of Urdu literature precedes the studies. Among the novelists are some of the perennials-Prem Chand, Khwaja Ahmad Abbas and Quratul-Ain Haider-flanked by two significant modern writers-Anwar Azeem and Pegham Afaqi. A comprehensive essay on Urdu drama and dramatists makes up the third and final section. Trends in theatre movements are also discussed in the essay. What kind of readership does one envisage for this uncommon work? Writers in other languages and students researching on Urdu literature are of course the obvious targeted readers. It may also be of interest to the younger generations of Urdu-knowing families who are interested in Urdu literature but are not well-versed in the script. And above all, we hope this book will be read by lovers of Urdu poetry and literature all over the world.
