The Beast and the Lion

It was one of my earliest attempts to implement the Iqbalian framework for a comparative study of literature after reconstructing that framework in The Republic of Rumi: a Novel of Reality (2007). It received much praise from some eminent scholars at that time due to its fresh approach but I would very much like to revise it some time soon, especially to make it non-judgmental towards poets whose worldviews differed from that of Iqbal (such as W. B. Yeats).

The Beast and the Lion: issues of transcendence in the poetry of Yeats and Iqbal (2007) was published by Iqbal Academy Pakistan.
