Melancholic Moods in the Poetry of Shah Latif

Abstract

Man leads life in different passionate phases and the most trying one of them is the melancholic one. Melancholy sometimes breaks the man and sometimes strengthens him. It has many shapes and colors. When man learns to use melancholy as his strength it helps him to attain sublimity. Melancholy is not just pain in heart but it is a source of sweet comfort. Very few men know the intricacies of melancholic mood.
