Mir Taqi Mir - Makers of Indian Literature
Mir Taqi Mir - Makers of Indian Literature
Description
From the Jacket:

In this monograph, Mir is presented as a poet next only to Ghalib and Iqbal in Urdu literature; whereas both of the latter have received a surfeit of critical studies, Mir has almost been neglected. Poet after Poet, including Ghalib, has paid him tribute in a verse or two and acknowledged to have received inspiration from him, but very few critics have gone deeply into his art and contribution, almost none in English. This book is a significant contribution that fills a deeply felt vacuum in Urdu literature.

This book, from the pen of a professor of English, is meant for the general reader who is not much acquainted with Mir in particular and Urdu literature in general. Mr. Ish Kumar, who has taught English literature for more than forty years, he tried to evaluate Mir more from the western than the eastern canons of literary criticism, which he believes, are a little different from each other in some respects. He has also tried to compare him not only with some Urdu poets, but also with some English poets, since he agrees with Goethe who said, "Left to itself, every literature will exhaust its vitality if not refreshed by the interest and contribution of a foreign."

About the Author:

Prof. Ish Kumar has taught English literature in different colleges and universities in the Punjab for more than four decades. His interest in Urdu literature, however started in his teems and has stuck to him all his life.
