About The Book


احمد فراز کی شاعری سے ہر عام و خاص واقف ہے ۔ انہوں نے ایک ضخیم کلیات چھوڑی ہے جس میں غزلیں اور بے پناہ مقبول نظمیں بھی ہیں۔ان کی شاعری رومان پر ور فضا میں سیر کرتی ہے ۔ انہوں نے ایسی شاعری کو تر جیح دی جو شباب کی پہلی کر ن دیکھنے والے لڑکوں اور لڑکیوں میں قبولیت حاصل کر سکے ۔اسی وجہ سے شاید انتظار حسین نے لکھا تھا ’’احمد فراز کی ترقی پسند شاعری نے مزدوروں اور کسانوں تک رسائی کی ہو یا نہ کی ہو لڑکیوں کے حلقے میں توبہت پائی، وہ اپنی سادگی میں سمجھتا رہا کہ احمد فرا ز کی غزل کچی عمر کی لڑکیوں کو بہت اپیل کر تی ہے مگر انہیں اصرار ہے کہ بوڑھی عورتیں بھی ان کی شاعری کی اس طر ح مداح ہیں جس طرح کچی عمر کی لڑکیاں ان پر ریجھتی ہیں۔‘‘ ان کی شاعری میں یہی نہیں بلکہ امکانی وسعتوں سے بہت آگے نئے اور روشن زمانوں کی خبر بھی ہے ، صدیوں کی تلاطم کا شعور بھی ہے اور پاکستا ن کے تلخ بھر ے عہد کا ادراک بھی ۔انہوں نے 14 شعری مجموعے یاد گار چھوڑ ے ہیں لیکن اس میں ایک مجموعہ ’’ اے عشق جنوں پیشہ ‘‘ شامل نہیں ہے ۔ کلام احمد فراز میں عشق و رومان کی حسین فضا تیار ہوتی ہے ۔ وہ نوخیز عمر کے ہمیشہ پسندیدہ شاعر رہے ہیں ۔

About The Author

Ahmad Faraz

Ahmad Faraz

Syed Ahmad Shah (1931-2008), who acquired the pen name of Faraz, came to be known as Ahmad Faraz as a poet. He was born at Nav Shahra although his ancestral place was Kohat. He studied at Islamia College, Kohat; Edwards College, Peshawar; and Peshawar University from where he got his degrees of M. A. in Urdu and M. A. in Persian. He began his career as a producer in Radio Pakistan. Later, he worked as a lecturer at Islamia College in Peshawar. Faraz disapproved of the military dictatorship in Pakistan and expressed himself unreservedly for which he was arrested. On his release, he preferred to live in a self-imposed exile in Europe and Canada for six years. Back home, he took up senior positions of administrative nature as Resident Director of Pakistan National Centre, and subsequently the Director of Akademy Adabiyat Pakistan, Lok Wirsa and Chairperson of National Book Foundation. A widely respected poet, Faraz received several awards. Some of these include Adamji Award, Abaseen Award, Kamal-e-Fun Award, and Hilal-e-Imtiyaz award, which he returned registering his displeasure with the country’s governance. He was decorated with Hilal-e-Pakistan award by the Government of Pakistan posthumously.  

Faraz started writing poetry while he was still a young college student. He emerged as a ghazal poet with an individual signature of his own. Even while he drew upon the traditional subjects of love and romance, he also wrote his age in his poetry with all its despairs and disappointments and produced some of the finest specimens of resistance poetry.  He was a prolific poet with several anthologies to his credit. These include Tanha Tanha, Dard-e-Aashob, Janan Janan, Shubkhoon, Merey Khwab Reza Reza, Beaawara Gali Koochon Mein, Nabeena Shar Mein Aaeena, Pus Andaz Mausam,  and Khwab-e-Gul Pareshan Hai. His translations of poetry are included in Sub Awazein Meri Hain. He also put together a selection from the poetry of Kunwar Mahinder Singh Bedi in Ai Ishq Junoon Pesha. His Kulliyat appeared with an inclusive title of Shahr-e-Sukhan Aaraasta Hai.
