Sheikh Muhammad Ibrahim Zauq was the poet-laureate of the last Mughal Bahadur Shah II. He composed a large number of odes which were much admired for their conceits and ornamentation. His lyrical poetry adopted the pure local idiom which was then the ideal of ghazal poets. In some of his verses, which have both the universe and love as his themes, Zauq has risen to great heights and some of his verses have become proverbial. Such a poet needs to be re-introduced to the new generation of readers, and this is what is being tried to achieve through this volume.
