This volume is a "sampling" of the works of 18 living poets whom the author knew in Lahore, Pakistan between 1959 and 1962, and whom he considers to be representative of the style and quality of the "gazel" genre. Each selection appears in Urdu (Arabic script), with its English translation, and explanatory notes. The Introduction contains brief biographical descriptions of the poets. Appendix One discusses Urdu poetics--(1) the types of poetic composition, (2) rhyme, (3) scansion, (4) measure and meter, (5) catalexis, and (6) an analysis of the meters used in the text. The appended Vocabulary is presented in Urdu and phonemic transcription, with English glosses. The authors suggest that this volume may be used by students on the second year level who have finished "a Course in Urdu." (See ed 013 435-7.) Two other works in the Urdu language, forthcoming from the same project at the Institute of Islamic Studies at McGill University, are "An Urdu Newspaper Reader" and "An Urdu Newspaper Wordcount."

This is the first of three volumes intended to be used as pedagogical materials in advanced Urdu courses at Western colleges and universities. An optional set of tape recordings and an optional set of 35mm slides accompany the three-volume work. Volume I contains the Urdu texts of the selections, plus a section of exercises. The work of 34 poets is included, representing the major foci and developments of Urdu literature during the past three centuries and some of the greatest masterpieces of Urdu literature. The organization of this volume is roughly chronological. Selections vary in length. An attempt has been made to include samples of most of the important genres of Urdu poetry and to select items of cultural interest to students of Indo-Pakistani Muslim culture. Each poet's selections are preceded by a page of biographical data, with a short bibliography. A section of several types of exercises is appended to this volume. Volume I also contains an appendix detailing the structure of Urdu prosody. (Author/RM)

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Klamath are Native Americans living in southwestern Oregon. This file consists of 11 documents. The focus of the literature is on tribal origins, traditional culture, social change, and mythology. The earliest by Gatschet is based on field work carried out in 1877 and includes information on geography, settlements, folklore, language, and mythology. Spier produced a "memory ethnography" based on informant recollections of ca. 1860 tribal life. He also compared Klamath cultural traits with those of neighboring groups in order to establish Klamath origins and affiliations. Stern wrote about the history, culture, and politics of the Klamath reservation and a study of Klamath myths and their narration. Barker also recorded Klamath mythology and life histories. Other articles in the file include studies of Klamath childhood and socialization (Pearsall), material culture (Barrett), personality and acculturation (Clifton and Levine), comparative religion (Spencer), and songs and their interpretation (Weaver)
