A Very Good copy in yellow wraps; small sticker from the Asia Society afixed to the inside of front cover. Signed by poet William Stafford on the title page. This selection of Ghalib's ghazals shows the power of the Urdu poet's abstract writing in the poetic form that constitutes two lines of equal length that tend to emote a third dimsensonal effect. Ghalib [1797-1869] was the preeminent Indian Urdu and Persian-language poet during the last years of the Mughal Empire and is considered to be one of the most popular and influential poets of the Urdu language.
