Writing with South Asian Ghazals [Shankar Narayan]
All Levels | Ghazals in South Asia are one of the most popular forms of poetry anywhere. While there has been much analysis of the ghazal’s evolution in English, how the ghazal works as popular art is less accessible to Western writers. This class aims to give participants a flavor of that space—we’ll listen to versions of ghazals in Urdu, read translations, consider what makes a good ghazal work, and create our own new works. Come ready to write!
