Hindi Poetry

Literature in Hindi languages (Hindi: हिन्दी साहित्य) includes literature in the various Central Zone Indo-Aryan languages which have writing systems. It is broadly classified into four prominent forms (styles) based on the date of production. They are;

  • Vir-Gathas (poems extolling brave warriors) - 11th-14th century
  • Bhakti era poems (devotional poems) - 14th-18th century
  • Riti or Srngar poems (poems of romance) - 18th-20th century
  • Adhunik literature (modern literature) - 20th century onwards

The literature was produced in dialects such as Braj, Bundeli, Awadhi, Kannauji, Khariboli, Marwari, Maithili, Magahi and Bhojpuri. From 20th century, works produced in Standard Hindi, a register of Hindi-Urdu language, is sometimes regarded as the only basis of modern literature in Hindi.

Famous quotes containing the word poetry:

    The man Shelley, in very truth, is not entirely sane, and Shelley’s poetry is not entirely sane either. The Shelley of actual life is a vision of beauty and radiance, indeed, but availing nothing, effecting nothing. And in poetry, no less than in life, he is a beautiful and ineffectual angel, beating in the void his luminous wings in vain.”
    Matthew Arnold (1822–1888)
