9780143415626: The Captured Gazelle: The Poems of Ghani Kashmiri

Every moment it seeks to slip from the minds nook Fresh poetic meaning is a gazelle to be captured

The Captured Gazelle is an elegant and lucent translation of the poems of the seventeenth-century Persian poet Mulla Tahir Ghani, better known as Ghani Kashmiri. Eulogized by poets such as Mir and Iqbal, Ghani is an outstanding representative of Sabk-e-Hindi or the Indian style in Persian poetry, which became a hallmark of the MughalSafavid literary culture. The introduction situates Ghani against his unique background in which Iranian and Indian poetic cultures came together to create a glorious literary age in Kashmir, while the translations capture Ghani in his wide spectrum of moods satirical, playful, self-pitying, pessimistic, mystically resigned bringing alive his wit and ingenuity in a modern idiom without losing hold on the tone.

About the Author:

Muhammad Tahir Ghani (d. 1669), better known as Ghani Kashmiri, is arguably the greatest Persian poet of Kashmir and one of its literary and cultural icons. Highly popular in India and the larger Persian speaking world up to the modern times, he influenced many generations of Persian and Urdu poets in India. Ghanis forte lies in his remarkable use of language to create poems with multiple layers of meaning. This, along with his versatility in creating delightful metaphors and images, makes him one of the few medieval poets with a striking appeal to the modern reader.

Mufti Mudasir Farooqi was born and raised in Srinagar. He has published on literary theory, postmodernism and Indo-Persian poetry. He is senior assistant professor in the Department of English, University of Kashmir.

Nusrat Bazaz is associate professor in the Department of English, University of Kashmir, where she teaches American poetry and fiction.
