Iqbal: A Selection of his Urdu and Persian Verse
Translated into English by David J. Matthews

This book provides a new English translation of a selection of Muhammad Iqbal’s Urdu and Persian poetry in a form that remains faithful to that of the original. The translations present pleasing renditions of Iqbal in an understandable contemporary idiom coupled with a conservative but well-wrought form (rhyme and metre). The purpose of this book is to give readers well-versed in English some idea of the grandeur and, indeed, the beauty of Iqbal’s poetry. It is a commendable addition to Iqbal studies, in that it presents a refreshingly enjoyable English translation of some of Iqbal’s best poetic writings.
