Intikhab-e-Kalam: Khawaja Mir Dard (Urdu)
Dard, Khawaja Mir
Dard has always found a high place in the hierarchy of classical poets, because of the felicity of his expression and also the even quality of his verse, which has the aspect of a selection rather than a collection, and his small Dewan has attracted the most casual reader of Urdu poetry as well as the most fastidious literary critics. The ghazal idiom enables his poetry to be read at both a worldly and spiritual level that is why the readership is so extensive. Dard was the only major poet not to desert Delhi at the times of strife.
