Akbar Allahabadi is a poet in the Urdu poetic tradition who, through his creative consciousness, revealed the inner layers of colonialism. The environment in which Akbar's poetry thrives is in colonial India, where he and other political and social leaders of his time are loyal to the British government. The historical context in which his poetry presents its meaning is the scenario of the post-1857 era of peace and reform and the beginning and the end of the First the World War. Although the concept of history is not very clear in his poetry, the external conditions which influenced his poetic temperament cannot be understood without being detached from the history. Akbar interprets the cultural conditions of the age with his poetic consciousness. In this article it is sought to study the Akbar’s poetry in Postcolonial perspective.
