Intikhab-e-Kalam: Mir Taqi Mir Second Edition

Compiled by Muhammad Reza Kazimi
This book contains selected ghazals of Mir Taqi Mir (1723–1810) who was the defining poet of classical Urdu poetry. His ghazals were celebrated for their utter simplicity and pathos, and his verses exemplifying the ideal suffering lover created a prototype that all masters of Urdu poetry aspired to but never achieved. Mir, thus, became the poets’ poet. This slim volume of his selected poetry is designed to make the poets’ poet, the people’s poet as well.
