This book contains English translations of the Urdu poems of Faiz Ahmad Faiz, MBE (1911-1984) by Naomi Lazard (b.1936). No Urdu poet has won so much international renown as Faiz Ahmad Faiz and he appeals to an audience found world-wide. He was a founder of the Progressive Writers Movement in India in 1936. He suffered a number of terms of imprisonment before his literary reputation earned him some respite from persecution. Faiz oversaw the shift of poetic themes from romantic love to human misery, but the sheer lyricality of his verse won him hordes of admirers across the ideological divide .The translator is herself a poet of renown. Naomi Lazard is a past-President of the Poetry Society of America and has published three volumes of poetry herself, some of which have been anthologized. The poet and the translator worked together closely to produce these translations.
