Harivansh Rai Bachchan is counted as one among the greatest Indian poets of the 20th century. His poems formed a major part of the neo-romantic movement in Hindi literature. Meri Shreshtha Kavitayen brings together some of the finest works of his poetic genius which have been selected by the poet himself.
Meri Shreshtha Kavitayen provides an extensive view of his body of work, even covering poems that he wrote at the beginning of his writing career.

About Harivansh Rai Bachchan
Harivansh Rai Bachchan was an eminent Indian poet.
He is best known for his book Madhushala, which consists of a series of 135 poetic verses. Ekaant Sangeet, Soot Ki Maala, and Ubharte Pratimaano Ke Roop are among his other poetical works. He is also known for translating a number of great literary works, including Khayyam’s Rubaiyat, Shakespeare’s Macbeth, and the Bhagvad Gita.
Bachchan was one of the pre-eminent writers of the Chhayavaadi tradition of Hindi literature. His writings primarily focused on humanist and romantic themes, often delving deep into the social mores of his time.
He was born in 1907 in Allahabad. Though his paternal surname was Shrivastav, he later adopted the title of Bachchan as his formal surname. He received his higher education at Allahabad University and at Banaras Hindu University, and later went on to teach English Literature at Allahabad University for over a decade. He was nominated to the Rajya Sabha in 1966. Among the many honours conferred upon him are the Sahitya Akademi Award and the Padma Bhushan.

About the anthology:
♦ 'Madhushala' is NOT included in its entirety. Rather, the poet's favorite 30-odd quartains are given.
♦ Far as I can tell, it has every celebrated Bachchan poem. The only one I couldn't seem to find was 'Saans chalti hai, tujhe chalna padega hi musafir.'
♦ The collection is enormous. The table of contents runs 11 pages! Although I do wish the publishers included an alphabetic index. You have to browse the table for the poem you're looking for.
♦ There are chronological chapters representing every single poetry book Bachchan ever published. About 25 of them. Lengths vary.
All in all, a great bargain. Go for it.
I wish more Hindi poets had the sense to do this. Then again, none of them were Bachchan :)
This book has everything it says it would have. It has almost all the literary work of Shri Harivansh rai Bachan ji, but i doubt that most of casual writers will not appreciate the book. I read almost the whole book, but only a few registered into my "worth reading" list. Better go for smaller specific books with the poems you like.
PRO : contains whole "Madhushala" , i assure you, this poem is a masterpiece.
