A Reader of Classical Urdu Poetry, Vol. Two.
Barker, Muhammad Abd-Al-Rahman; And Others
This is the second of three volumes intended to be used as pedagogical materials in advanced Urdu courses at Western colleges and universities. An optional set of tape recordings and an optional set of 35mm slides accompany the three-volume work. Volume II includes the translation and commentaries (where needed) of all the verses presented in the first volume, excluding those in the exercises. The translations are literal; they are not in English verse, and little or no attempt has been made to put them into smooth, literary English. The elaborate symbolism and many-leveled discourse of Urdu poetry necessitate frequent paragraphs of commentary; these are inserted after the verse(s) to which they apply. These commentaries may also contain grammatical and lexical information, cultural notes, explanations of historical or mythological references, etc. (Author/RM)
