Ghazals of Ghalib
Ghazals of Ghalib
Description
About the Book:

This imaginatively conceived volume presents highly original renderings of the ghazals of the poet Mirza Ghalib (1797-1869) made by seven well-known American poets. The ghazals is the basic poetic form in Urdu poetry, and is marked by easily identifiable patterns of imagery. Ghalib used it to effectively express his sense of old values breaking up and nothing of equal strength taking their place.

After making a literal translation of thirty seven of Ghalib's ghazals. Aijaz Ahmad gave them tot he American poets for a poetic interpretation of those that interested them. The resulting variety of interpretation is remarkable, and indicates the evocative richness of Ghalib's poetry.

Offering fascinating insights into the work of this major Indian poet and poetic creation in general, this volume also includes Aijaz Ahmad's lucid Introduction (which provides the context for Ghalib's verse and the ghazal in Urdu poetry), the literal translations with helpful explanatory notes, and poems by the American poets written in response to Ghalib's ghazals.

This creative volume is for all lovers of Mirza Ghalib's verse as well as for those interested in how poets and poems from different parts of the world can speak to each other.

About the Author:

Aijaz Ahmad is Visiting Professor of Political Science, York University, Toronto, and holds the Rajiv Gandhi Chair at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. He is the author of In Theory (OUP, 1992) and Lineages of the Present (Verso, 2000).

Excerpts from Reviews:

'...this [volume] testifies to the fact Ghalib can speak to the modern English-speaking world in a way that evokes a deep response.'

- Ralph Russell, Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society

'The language of both the literal as well as the poetic translation is grand, almost majestic...On the whole, [it serves] its purpose effectively, for it places the reader face to face with a poet par excellence...'

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
