Writings on Faiz was initiated as a project of the Gurmani Centre for Languages and to mark the Faiz Ahmed Faiz centenary, and edited by its director, Yasmeen Hameed. The book brings together articles and essays on Faiz by British,American, Russian, Indian, and Pakistani writers along with Faiz's poems rendered into English by thirteen translators. Two of Faiz's interviews sum up the poet's own views on art, literature, and the artist. Ranging from purely critical writings to reminiscences and memoirs, the collection provides a comprehensive overview of the poet's persona, his work, and the major happenings that influenced and shaped his literary career. The book is compiled as a tribute to Faiz and is significant as it represents the first time such diverse material in English has been collected in a single volume.
