Worth Reading

I'm currently going through the book. The selection of Urdu poems is very apt and translations are excellent; a great job done by the author. The layout is very attractive and the use of phoenetic alphabet in English transliteration of Urdu script is really very thoughtful and useful for proper pronunciation of Urdu words. The only caveat is the quality of paper used. The impression of the printing on one side of the paper is visible on the obverse also, and it distracts the attention of the reader.

Description

About Book

The exquisite journey of love passes through numerous twists and turns, bringing different experiences to each individual.

In Urdu poetry, poets have penned down these diverse experiences in rhyme with a sheer eloquence that aptly expresses the exceptional bond between the lover and the beloved. Meer, Ghalib, Momin, Dagh, Faiz and hundreds of Urdu poets have voices to the emotions of lovers going through stages such as longing, interplay, loving, possessiveness, rivalry, seperation, breaking-up and frenzy.

This eloquence makes every reader share this thought, as was inimitably expressed by Mirza Ghalib:

Dekhna taqreer ki lazzat ki jo us ne kahaa
Maine ye jaanaa ki goyaa ye bhi mere dil men hai

‘Love Longing Loss in Urdu Poetry’ offers a lyrical English transcreation of these experiences woven in the web of an enchanting tale that includes the subtle nuances and the beauty of Urdu poetry with all its beauty.
