About the Book

The present edition of Encyclopaedic  Dictionary of Urdu language and literature has been redesigned with a specific planning that goes under alphabetic order to include not only the man of letters but also nearly all aspects characterising the facts making up Urdu literature. It also gives a chronological picture of the development of Urdu literature from around the sixteen century to the present day. The contribution of many poets, writers, playwrights, essayists and critics are given along with their biographical accounts provided with a bibliography. The account of the contribution of poets and writers goes with an implicit emphasis upon the after effects of a literary work on the human mind. The edition serves the purpose of research and survey of Urdu literature well. It is a reference work and a compact guidebook for research providing bibliography with each poet and prose writer.
