This book is principally a sum of critical responses to selected modern poets in Urdu language.

The author's aim here is to capture, for his readers, something of the splendor of modern Urdu verse through his pithy analysis, penetrative comments and copious illustrations. He has selected for his critical appraisal modern poets like Josh, Faiz, Qasmi, Ibe-e-Insha, Mustafa Zaidi, Shaukat Wasti, Ada Jafgri and a few others. He discusses these poets in a manner that has probably never been attempted before. While evaluating their merit, he does not confine himself to any of the several approaches to literary criticism. Instead, his attitude is eclectic.

The object of Yunus Ahmar's critical appreciation not only enables him to look at things from the poet's angle of vision, it is also to quicken his mind, to make his reading creative. And to this end, apart from logic and reasoning, evidence in the form of quotations is indispensable. After going through Ahmar's appreciation, the reader isno longer a passive recipient of information, he learns to think and decide for himself.

For those lovers of Urdu literature, who are not conversant with this language, this book is a boon.
