Main Article Content
The two twentieth century poets, Nazim Hikmet of Turkey and Faiz Ahmed Faiz of Pakistan, were so similar in their political struggles and poetic discourse; they look like twin poets who lived apart in different societies. Both are remembered as poets who juxtaposed ideological sensibilities with romantic imageries in their poetry. Both fought against tyrannies of their rulers and were invariably imprisoned and exiled from their own countries. The paper, citing their work and life experiences, draws parallels from their ideological and poetic discourse.
