Intikhab-e-Kalam: Shah Naseer
This book contains a selection from the poems of Shah Naseer who was a prominent Sufi poet of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. He had a very good command over the poetic diction of the Delhi school. Naseer was known for his mastery over the art of poetics and his compositions in complicated metres and difficult radeefs are an evidence of his unmatched skills. He is said to be a trendsetter of his age. Eminent poets like Momin, Zauq and Zafar were among his pupils.
