The Collected Short Stories of Kazi Nazrul Islam


1 in stock


This unique volume presents all 20 of Kazi Nazrul Islam’s short stories for the first time in English translation. Featuring rich imagery, evocative landscapes, references to music, classical poetry, folktales and more, these stories invite the reader to re-evaluate the ‘rebel poet’ as an empathetic humanitarian. The volume is a transnational, collaborative labour of love bringing together stellar editors and translators from Bangladesh and India. The stories are accompanied by a timeline of Nazrul’s life and a critical introduction that not only provides foundational contexts for the stories, but also highlights Nazrul’s attempt to counter majoritarianism and various hegemonies by dismantling hierarchies and celebrating intimate pluralities.
