Intikhab-e-Kalam: Hali

Compiled by Rauf Parekh
This book is a selection of poems by Altaf Husayn Hali who, under the aegis of the British Education Department, effected a transition of Urdu poetry from Persian-oriented to English-oriented norms. His poetical guide was Ghalib, later the subject of a critical biography by Hali. As a socio-political reformer, he influenced Iqbal, the first poet to have a philosophical system. Even the dialectic poems of Hali, for example the long Musadas-e-Hali proved to be very popular.
