Aesthetics in the classical forms of Shaikh Ayazs’ Poetry

Abstract

Shaikh Ayaz is no doubt the towering literary figure and a great poet of twentieth century in Indus valley. He was not only an exceptional mind and a poet laureate of the sub-continent, who stands in the category of world prominent poets, but a rare one, after Shah Abdul Latif in Sindhi literature, who described Sindh and Sindhi people in an artistic manner. Ayaz not only has a series of published volumes of poetic & literary work on his credit, but was the only modern Sindhi poet and prose writer, who had remarkable knowledge of eastern as well as western literature, history and art. He was well aware of world classics and aesthetics, which he adapted in his poetry very flamboyantly.
