Khyber literary school at the XX century came into existence as a new Pashto literary school which brought up a number of skilled artists of Afghan literature. Lalzada Nazir Shinwari (1919-2000) was one of the poets who became famous with his philosophical poems. Although he did not study at school, he worked at himself and independently studied Urdu language. Hamza Shinwari evaluated his interest in poetry and taught him secrets of writing poems. Since 1940 he independently began to write poems and contributed Pashto poetry of the twentieth century. He was not only a poet but also became a playwright and wrote a number of radio drams. However, a large part of Nazir Shinwari’s heritage is literary poetry. His collection of poems مزل - “Road” was published in Lahore, Pakistan in 1997. Late publication of the collection was explained by author as following: “The reason of the late publication is not financial difficulty. The reason is my creative dissatisfaction. Every time considering about publication of a collection of poems the thought “it is possible to write better poetry” does not give me peace”.
