This annotation introduces some books on contemporary Urdu poetry, especially the books written on these five important poets in Pakistan such as Faiz Ahmad Faiz (Faiẕ Aḥmad Faiẕ 1911–89), Nun Mim Rashid (Nūn Mīm Rāshid 1910–75), Majid Amjad (Majīd Amjad 1914– 74), Miraji (Mīrājī 1912–49) and Akhtar Shirani (Akhtar Shīrānī 1905–48). After Muhammad Iqbal (1977–1938), these poets can be called the founders of contemporary Urdu poetry and their work reflects the social transformation of Pakistan. Akhtar Shirani was the most famous Urdu poet of Romanticism in the beginning of the twentieth century. Nun Mim Rashid is called a ‘rebellious poet’ as he wrote a poem about the funeral of God in his early works. Being a symbol of the communist movement in Pakistan, Faiz Ahmad Faiz is the best example of this social reflection in Pakistan as he was arrested in 1950s because of his antigovernment communist activities. Miraji tried to rethink Urdu poetry through the study of contemporary English and French poetry. Apart from those political, social or literary activities by poets, Majid Amjad was writing unique poetry in south Punjab. The Aqeel Collection of Kyoto University has a rich collection of books of Urdu literature as well as books on history or Sufism in South Asia and these books of Urdu literature consist of classic literature including Dakkani pre-modern, modern and contemporary works that were published in both Pakistan and India. Since poetry is the most famous and popular genre of Urdu literature, this annotation tries to show the books on contemporary Urdu poetry.
