Mir Muhammad Taqi Mir (1723-1810) is widely regarded as the most accomplished poet in the Urdu language. His massive output--six divans--was produced in Delhi and Lucknow during the high tide of Urdu literary culture. SelectedGhazalsand Other Poemsoffers a comprehensive collection of Mir's finestghazals,extended lyrics composed of couplets, and of hismasnavis,narrative works of a romantic or didactic character. Theghazalscelebrate earthly and mystical love through subtle wordplay, vivid descriptions of the beloved, and a powerful individual voice. The sometimes satiricalmasnavishighlight everyday subjects: domestic pets, monsoon rains, the rigors of travel. They also include two astonishing love stories: one about young men whose relationship is shattered when one marries; the other about a queen, her peacock lover, and the jealous king who seeks to drive them apart. The Urdu text, presented here in the Nastaliq script, accompanies new translations of Mir's poems, some appearing in English for the first time.
