Description

This imaginative approach to the work of Urdu poet Ghalib presents highly original renderings, made by seven well-known American poets, of Ghalib's ghazals.Editor Aijaz Ahmad began by selecting thirty-seven of the ghazals for literal translation. These versions were then given to the American poets who made poetic interpretations of those ghazals which interested them. The resulting volume consists of Aijaz Ahmad's introduction to Ghalib's poetry, the ghazals in Urdu, the literal versions with explanatory notes, and the poems written by the American poets in response to the ghazals.
