A brilliant biography of nineteenth century India s greatest poet Mirza Mohammad Asadullah Khan Ghalib began writing poetry in Persian at the age of nine and the pre-eminent poet of the time, Mir, predicted a great future for the precocious genius when he was shown his verse. But success and material rewards did not come to Ghalib easily for the times were against him, and he did not suffer fools gladly even if they occupied positions of importance. Ghalib was at the height of his powers when events took a turn for the worse. First came the decline of the Mughal court, then the rise of the British Empire and, finally, the Revolt of 1857. Though Ghalib lived through the upheavals and purges of the Revolt, in which many of his contemporaries and friends died and his beloved Delhi was irrevocably changed, he was a broken man and longed for death.

Varma evocatively captures the spirit of the man and the essence of the times he lived in.

I absolutely love this book. I picked it up from the library, and I may buy a Kindle edition, because I will keep referring back to it.

In this, Pavan Varma gives us a very clear picture of the times, the culture and the environment in which Ghalib lived. His growth as a poet, his trauma during the Mutiny, his struggles are explained so very clearly. The style is lucid, and the book is immensely readable.

This is a timely tribute to the man, his poetry and his legacy. It is an essential read for anyone who wants to understand the Delhi of the times.

This short, well-written biography is thorough and thoughtfully organized, a fascinating story, told with balanced insight. Reading it, one not only observes the events but feels them, a painful tide, made worse by the man's short-comings yet against which he had no control but for his own extraordinary wisdom and inner strength. Reading this book, the man becomes not an historical abstraction but a real flesh-and-blood precursor to our own personal history.

Pavan varma should be welcomed in the community of the famous critics of the great poet Ghalib as a new authentic scholar of not only the poetry but also the times of the last luminary of the Moghul court.He has given a graphic account of the vicissitudes through which Ghalib and the last Moghul Emperor passed. The city of Delhi with all its palaces,mosques and great Moghul buildings comes alive in his descriptions. Translations of Ghalib's poetry are meticulous and authentic. The pictures of the landmark places in the life of the poet are rare and add colour and authenticity.
