Summary note:
"Writing Self, Writing Empire examines the life, career, and writings of the Mughal state secretary, or Munshi, Chandar Bhan 'Brahman' (d. c.1670), one of the great Indo-Persian poets and prose stylists of early modern South Asia. Chandar Bhan's life spanned the reigns of four different emperors, Akbar (1556-1605), Jahangir (1605-1627), Shah Jahan (1628-1658), and Aurangzeb 'Alamgir (1658-1707), the last of the 'Great Mughals' whose courts dominated the culture and politics of the subcontinent at the height of the empire's power, territorial reach, and global influence"--Provided by publisher.
