Tulip in the desert: a selection of the poetry of Muhammad Iqbal
"Muhammad Iqbal (1877-1938) is one of the pre-eminent writers of the Indian subcontinent, and the attention he has received from writers, translators and critics in Western as well as Islamic countries testifies to his stature as a world literary figure. While his reputation is primarily as a poet, he has also been called 'the most serious Muslim philosophical thinker of modern times'. He wrote poetry in both Urdu and Persian."--BOOK JACKET.
