The first anthology of its kind to appear in English, "Modern Poetry of Pakistan" brings together not one but many poetic traditions indigenous to Pakistan, with 142 poems translated from seven major languages, six of them regional (Baluchi, Kashmiri, Panjabi, Pashto, Seraiki, and Sindhi) and one national (Urdu). Collecting the work of forty-two poets and fifteen translators, this book reveals a society riven by ethnic, class, and political differences--but also a beautiful and truly national literature, with work both classical and modern, belonging to the same culture and sharing many of the same concerns and perceptions.

This book was a challenge to read since it took me several days to read it but I remembered how good it felt when I accomplished the goal of finishing it. A lot of thoughts were put into each poem by the authors.
