I exported the historical and social background of this period with the help of social psychology. It is necessary to scrutiny of any poet or author to exploration His historical social and political environment because any creator cannot be creates anything to strike off his environment. The effect of culture and socio-economical circumstances are very important to understand poet's personality and his poetry.

The changes and causes of these changes in language and tones also describe in this chapter. The third chapter is psycho analysis of personality of Meer Taqi Meer. The psycho-analysis is very important discussion to understand the personality and work of a creator. I tried to understand the personality of Meer to keep away of his poetry. For this purpose I obtained help with his autobiography, old biography and opinions of critics and scholars. I tried to analysis his personality in the light of psycho dynamic personality theories. I selected three psycho analyst Frued, Jung and Adler, their theories are very important in psycho dynamic personality theories. I tried to understand the different aspects of his personality in the light of these three theories, specially these aspects which are disputed in the opinion of scholars. The creative work and process is also an important point in psychological criticism. Meer is basically odic poet. His ode is very allusive. I try to understand his allusive personality in the light of his allusive ode. These aspects of his personality which has psychological interest or his disputed properties are described to considered his odic poetry. I studied the creative process and creations of Meer in psychological bases and confirmed or confuted these aspects of his personality which come in to the light with the help of psycho-dynamic theories. In the end of this chapter tried to describe the psychological bases of his poetic techniques. In fifth chapter I studied these genres of literature which used by Meer Taqi Meer are "Masnavi", "Qasida", "Hajv", "Marsea", "Shahr Ashob", "Wasokht", "Haft Band", "Rubai", "Tarjeeh Band". It is very difficult to psychological analysis of these genres, especially formed genres and subjective genres are also not totally analysed by scholars.
