About Faiz Ahmad Faiz. He had a privileged childhood as the son of wealthy landowners Sultan Fatima and Sultan Muhammad Khan, who passed away inshortly after his birth.

His father was a prominent lawyer and a member of an elite literary circle which included Allama Iqbal, the national poet of Pakistan. He received a Bachelor’s degree in Arabic, followed by a master’s degree in English, from the Government College in Lahore inand later received a second master’s degree in Arabic from the Oriental College in Lahore.

After graduating inFaiz began a teaching career at M. Faiz’s early poems had been conventional, light-hearted treatises on love and beauty, but while in Lahore he began to expand into politics, community, and the thematic interconnectedness he felt was fundamental in both life and poetry.

It was also during this period that he married Alys George, a British expatriate, with whom he had two daughters. After the partition of India inFaiz resigned from the army and became the editor of The Pakistan Times, a socialist English-language newspaper.

On March 9,Faiz was arrested with a group of army officers under the Safety Act, and charged with the failed coup attempt that became known as the Rawalpindi Conspiracy Case. He was sentenced to death and spent four years in prison before being released. Two of his poetry collections, Dast-e Saba and Zindan Namah, focus on life in prison, which he considered an opportunity to see the world in a new way.


While living in Pakistan after his release, Faiz was appointed to the National Council of the Arts by Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s government, and his poems, which had previously been translated into Russian, earned him the Lenin Peace Prize in InFaiz settled in Karachi and was appointed principal of Abdullah Haroon College, while also working as an editor and writer for several distinguished magazines and newspapers.

He worked in an honorary capacity for the Department of Information during the war between India and Pakistan, and wrote stark poems of outrage over the bloodshed between Pakistan, India, and what later became Bangladesh. There he edited the magazine Lotus, and continued to write poems in Urdu.

He remained in exile until He died in Lahore inshortly after receiving a nomination for the Nobel Prize. Throughout his tumultuous life, Faiz continually wrote and published, becoming the best-selling modern Urdu poet in both India and Pakistan. While his work is written in fairly dasgt diction, his poems maintain a casual, conversational tone, creating tension between the elite and the common, somewhat in the tradition of Ghalib, the reknowned 19th century Urdu poet.

Faiz is especially celebrated for his poems in traditional Urdu forms, such as the ghazal, and his remarkable ability to expand the conventional thematic expectations to include political and social issues.
