Abstract:

These 104 poems establish Faiz as a great lyricist who embraced traditional motifs and subjects with a passion and proclivity for verse that explores the natural and illusory qualities of love. Yet Faiz was a tortured man who loved beauty, but found himself surrounded by the pain, sorrow, poverty, bloodshed, and tears of daily life in post-Colonial Pakistan. It is in this dynamic counterpoise that Faiz's artistry becomes manifest, mixing the good, the bad and the ugly in a delightful manner. --P. [4] of cover.
