About the Book

The Poems of Faiz Ahmed Faiz, one of the most significant Urdu poets in the Indian Subcontinent, combine the older poetic modes of elegiac, romantic, and introspective, with a fresh note of criticism of society, and the desire to change it. Faiz's poems-providing glimpses of the Indian national movement and the beginnings of the socialist movement-also have profound historical interest.

This Book focuses on the poet's four collections, which represent not only some of Faiz's finest work, but also the best in contemporary Urdu writing. Kiernan's versatile, scholarly, and at the same time lucid translation clearly brings out the qualities of Urdu poetry for readers in English. The Urdu text appears in easy-to-read calligraphed Script with two translations, a 'literary' one that captures the essential qualities of Faiz's delicately suggestive poetry, and a 'literal' one-a scholarly transliteration-which is faithful to the original. This book will be invaluable for students and teachers of Urdu studies, Indian literature in translation, and comparative literature, as well as general readers interested in poetry.
