This monograph attempts to introduce the poet to the readers who have no direct access to his poetry, prose and songs. The life and work of Kazi Nazrul Islam have been presented here briefly in the proper context of the times.

The rebel poet of Bengal is considered one of India's best creative artists of the twentieth century. A remarkable poet and patriot, Nazrul suffered a great deal during India's struggle for freedom. Out of this suffering was born poetry which has immortalized both the poet and the causes dear to his heart.

The rebel poet was all but dead to the world for the last three decades of his life. By an irony of fate, Nazrul of irrepressible energy was for 30 years in mental derangement. The heavy gloom and involuntary muteness knew no relief. Even in his tragic silence Nazrul remained the singing voice of the age of the common man.
