Author Bio
Agha Shahid Ali
Agha Shahid Ali, a universally beloved poet and teacher, died of a brain tumor at the age of 52. Born and raised in New Delhi, he received his Ph.D. in English from Penn State in 1984 (his dissertation was on T.S. Eliot) and an MFA from the University of Arizona a year later. He enjoyed writing in complex Western verse forms, such as canzones and sestinas, but his specialty as a poet was the ghazal, an ancient Persian form that uses brief, couplet-like stanzas and a recurring rhyme. His two books of ghazals, RAVISHING DISUNITIES (an anthology) and the posthumous CALL ME ISHMAEL TONIGHT, have been acclaimed by critics and by other poets and have done much to popularize the ghazal in America. Ali was the recipient of many awards, including a Guggenheim Foundation grant and a Pushcart Prize. When he died, he had just left a professorship at the University of Massachusetts to teach at the University of Utah. His most recent book was ROOMS ARE NEVER FINISHED.

Praise

Bloomsbury Review
"This edition brings the work of Faiz back into print. Born in India and considered the leading poet on the South Asian subcontinent, Faiz (1911-1984) was a two-time Nobel nominee and winner of the 1962 Lenin Peace Prize....Ali...has re-created Faiz' language in short startling poems that reverberate in English." - Ray Gonzalez 03/1996
