Book Review: Love Sonnets of Ghalib by Dr. Sarfaraz K. Niazi

Katja rated it it was amazing Jan 18, In a Cult of Their Own: Musaab rated it it was amazing Sep 08, This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Regardless of the simplicity or difficulty encountered in his verses, nothing is ever straightforward; there are nuances, there are similes, there are traps hidden in every couplet that Ghalib wrote.

Anurag Patidar added it Aug 21, I’ve skimmed through many books but in my experience a lot is lost in translation specially in works by Rumi and Ghalib where a word has multiple meanings giving several layers of subtext to the rendering. Whatever I say, nobody gets it. With fierce independence of mind and an acid tongue, little around him escaped his wit and caustic laceration, including the Mughal Emperor himself. A book of this scope could not have been written without the help, motivation, and assistance of many people.

Love Sonnets of Ghalib

One can readily arrive at a literal correspondence for every word, but a translation of a ghazal that truly captures the emotional essence or message of the genre is a hearty task. How does one translate into another language soulful, whimsical, cultural, and situational word arrangements that are entirely indigenous and colloquial?

Muhammad Mohsin marked it as to-read Oct 28, The impression left on him by his home environment is amply evident in the achievement of this lkve. Persecuted at times by all sides in the collision of faiths, Kabir’s legend describes his victory od trials by a Sultan, a Brahmin, a Qazi, a merchant and god, and he became the subject of folk legends that still inspire tolerance in sectarian strife between Muslims and Hindus down to the present.
