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.
