--: Biography of Muhammad Hasan :--


Professor Muhammad Hasan would be remembered as a leading Urdu critic. Prof Hasan [1926-2010] who was associated with the Progressive Writers' Movement was also a poet, a playright and a multi-faceted personality. He had penned a biographical novel 'Gham-e-Dil, Vahshat-e-Dil' on the 'Keats of Urdu poetry' Majaz Lakhnavi. The novel is considered a gem. Dr Hasan wrote several plays including the famous drama on Ghalib. His play, Zohak, centred on the sensitive subject of emergency imposed by former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in the seventies. He wrote 75 books, which include his collection of poetry Zanjir-e-Naghma apart from some unpublished works. His book on Iqbal, which was published in English, is regarded highly by scholars.
