Ghalib appears by a kind of common consent to be the most outstanding among the Urdu poets, and it is essential that his work should be known to the non-Urdu-speaking people of India as well as abroad.
Ghalib followed an established poetic tradition, which he enriched with his own imagination and experience. Succeeding generations have found that he expressed his innermost thoughts in the most striking of poetic modes.
