About The Author

Sayyad Ehtisham Hussain, former Chairman, Department of Urdu, Allahabad, UP, was one of India’s top Marxist critic of Urdu who published more than half a dozen volumes of his literary essays, besides several other books.

He was born in 1912 in Mahul, a small village in Azamgarh. He attended high school on Azamgarh, and then studied at Allahabad for his M.A. His first assignment as a teacher of Urdu was at Lucknow University in 1938. From there he went on a study tour of U.S. in 1952, supported by the Rockefeller Foundation. The impressions of this travel are told in his travelogue ‘Sahil Aur Samandar’. In 1961 he was appointed to the Urdu chair at the Allahabad University.

Sayyad Ehtisham Hussain has written extensively on classical and modern literature. He has been one of the lending lights of the Progressive Writers Movement and has given Urdu criticism a new basis and a new direction. His prose presents him as a calm, quiet, and detached writer; actually, he possesses an interesting, agreeable, and charming personality. His Urdu is close to the basic common core speech. The use of high-flown or ornate language does not find favor with him, and his prose is marked for simplicity, candor and insight.
