Compiled by Moinuddin Aqeel
This is a representative selection of the poetry of Dr Muhammad Deen Taseer whose poems came as a breath of fresh air at a time when literary trends were changing. His poems contain romantic elements, rich verse illustrations of the
Arabian Nights variety, but his most profound poems relate to the elusive nature of happiness. Taseer was one of those poets who had undeniable merit, yet his accomplishments in literary criticism had overshadowed his poetic output. This
anthology will enable his poetry to be judged separately from his other literary work.
