An Introduction to the Poetry of Ghalib
An Introduction to the Poetry of Ghalib
Description
About the Book:

This book is a companion volume to the Complete Translation of the Diwan-e-Ghalib by the same author. The Poetry of Ghalib is analysed by putting together verses scattered through the Diwan concerning different subjects and using various sufi symbols The philosophy, sen sinility and the world view of Ghalib are thus defined in a new way.

About the Author:

Daughter of a distinguished medical practitioner, the author was inculcated a love of Urdu and Persian poetry at an early age by both parents, especially her erudite mother. After graduation from lady herding Medical College New Delhi, she served for several years in the hospital of the alma mater and in Uttar Pradesh, before going to France for further medical studies. This led to a career there, in the State Medical Research Organization (INSERM). After retirement, she has returned to the old family home in dehradun. She attempts to further knowledge of Urdu, and its poetic sensibility, by translation of its classical poets into English as also French.
