Literary Life

Abul Hasan, who came first in the Asian Poetry Competition held in 1970, occupies an important place in modern Bangla Poetry though he wrote for only a decade.

Among his volumes of poems are Raja Yay Raja Ase (1972), Ye Tumi Haran Karo (1974) and Prithak Palanka (1975). The poetic play Ora Kayekjan (1988) and Abul Hasaner Galpa Sanggraha (1990) were published after his death.
