This is a representative selection of the poetry of Nadir Kakorvi who was a consummate poet and also an aficionado of English literature. He translated into Urdu the poems of Byron, and Shelley but mostly Thomas Moore. Nadir’s original
Urdu poems stand out for their compactness and organizational brevity, which most classical Urdu poets lack because of their penchant for the ghazal, a form of poetry in which the themes of each distich are different from each other. This
selection will introduce the poetry of Nadir to a new generation of Urdu poetry lovers.
