The complete collection of works by Nazrul's in print is Nazrul Rochonaboli (new edition, 1996), available in four volumes, and published by Bangla Academy, Dhaka 1000, Bangladesh. This collection is indispensable to anyone truly interested in his works.
This website includes translation of select works of Nazrul. Among the notable translators are Kabir Chowdhury, Sajed Kamal, Syed Sajjad Hussain, Rezaul K. Talukdar, William Radice, et al.
I have translated a few pieces as well. I request that readers treat my pieces as drafts as I did most of them in one attempt, and as I have not revisited them since. Also, my compositional mastery, especially of literary English, is limited. Readers should factor that in as well, when reading my pieces. Any suggestion is most welcome.
This page contains links to SAMPLE selections of Nazrul's:
Novel - excerpts (translations)
Articles and Prose-excerpts (in Bangla; some translations)
SONGS (audio files)
