The prolific Mir Taqi Mir (1723–1810), widely regarded as the most accomplished poet in Urdu, composed his ghazals—a poetic form of rhyming couplets—in a distinctive Indian style arising from the Persian ghazal tradition. Here, the lover and beloved live in a world of extremes: the outsider is the hero, prosperity is poverty, and death would be preferable to the indifference of the beloved. Ghazals offers a comprehensive collection of Mir’s finest work, translated by a renowned expert on Urdu poetry.

Zikr-i Mir
"This is the first English translation of this major text, extensively annotated, and preceded by a general Introduction. The translator has also used Appendices to fill in the gaps in Mir's account, drawing on other writings by Mir and his peers. It will be of great interest to all scholars of Urdu and Persian literature as well as to students of the social and cultural history of pre-modern north India."--BOOK JACKET.
