READINGS IN URDU--PROSE AND POETRY.
NAIM, C.M.
A READER OF PROSE WRITINGS IN URDU WAS COMPILED FOR THE STUDENT WITH A BASIC KNOWLEDGE OF THE URDU LANGUAGE. THE TEXT CONSISTS OF FOUR SHORT STORIES, ONE LONG SHORT STORY, ONE HUMOROUS ESSAY, ONE EXTRACT FROM AN ESSAY OF LITERARY CRITICISM, ONE PUBLISHED RADIO TALK, TWO EDITORIALS FROM AN IMPORTANT PAKISTANI NEWSPAPER, AND 10 POEMS. ALL THE PROSE SELECTIONS INCLUDED HERE WERE WRITTEN AND PUBLISHED AFTER 1930. STORIES WERE SELECTED ON THE BASIS OF THEIR APPEAL TO MATURE MINDS, ESPECIALLY OF A NON-NATIVE AUDIENCE, AND FOR THEIR LITERARY VALUE IN URDU. THE REMAINING PROSE PIECES WERE CHOSEN TO REPRESENT OTHER STYLES AND THUS TO PROVIDE THE STUDENT WITH A MORE VARIED AND MORE USEFUL VOCABULARY. THE 10 POEMS WERE INCLUDED TO GIVE STUDENTS IN THE UNITED STATES SOME IDEA OF THE URDU GHAZAL POETRY. (TC)
