Intikhab-e-Kalam: Shaad Azeemabadi

Compiled by Muhammad Reza Kazimi
This book contains a selection from the poems of Shaad Azeemabadi who was responsible, firstly, for the revival of Urdu ghazal, and, secondly, for giving an ideological basis to the Urdu elegy. In Shaad, the creative impulse was stronger than critical insight. Shaad wrote of requited love in a more respectable setting. The lyrical abandon found in his poems is yet to be equalled.
