Intikhab-e-Kalam: Atash

Compiled by Brij Narayan Chakbast
This book contains selections from the verses of Khawaja Haider Ali Atash, the most renowned ghazal poet of the Lucknow School. Atash lived in the surroundings of decadent poetry, but because of his ascetic nature he wrote mainly on spiritual themes and of the calamities befalling his age. His poetry is attractive even though he relegated romantic themes to the margins of his poetry. The diction of Atash is also remarkable, in that though it lacks the flow and facility of his contemporaries, it is attuned to reflection, in which he excels.
