About The Book

"درد آشوب " فراز کا دوسرا شعری مجموعہ ہے جو 1966 ء میں منظر عام پر آیا ، اس مجموعے کو شاعری کی بہترین کاوش قرار دیا گیا اور اس مجموعے پر احمد فراز کو پاکستان رائٹرز گلڈ کے تحت آدم جی آوارڈ سے نوازا گیا۔ درد آشوب کے بارے میں لکھتے ہوئے جمیل یوسف کہتے ہیں " احمد فراز کا پہلا مجموعہ " تنہا تنہا" آٹھ سال قبل 1958 میں شائع ہو چکا تھا مگر توجہ کا مرکز اسے "دردآشوب " نے ہی بنایا۔ اس مجموعہ میں "35 نظمیں 66 غزلیں شامل ہیں۔ اس مجموعہ کو فراز نے محبوب اختر کے نام منسوب کیا ہے۔ جب یہ مجموعہ شائع ہوا تو پڑھنے والوں نے اس کو ہاتھوں ہاتھ لیا تھا، اس مجموعہ کی شاعری کی خوبی یہ ہے کہ یہ اپنے اندر نہ صرف نیا اسلوب اختیار کئے ہوئے ہے بلکہ ساری اردو شاعری کو ایک نیا لہجہ اور نیا احساس دلاتا ہے،اس مجموعہ میں بھی شکوے کثرت سے ملتے ہیں،یہاں بھی" تنہا تنہا"کی طرح مذہب کا کوئی مثبت رنگ نظر نہیں آتا لیکن " درد آشوب" کےشکوےمیں وہ جذباتی لے مدھم نظر آتی ہے جو "تنہا تنہا" میں عروج پردکھائی دیتی ہے۔

About The Author

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.
