Most often, either the beloved has not returned the poet's love or returns it without sincerity or else the societal circumstances do not allow it. The lover is aware and resigned to this fate but continues loving nonetheless; the lyrical impetus of the poem derives from this tension.

Oxford English–Urdu Dictionary

Representations of the lover's powerlessness to resist his feelings often include lyrically exaggerated violence. The beloved's power to captivate the speaker may be represented in extended metaphors about the "arrows of his eyes", or by referring to the beloved as an assassin or a killer.

I wonder what was the place where I was last night, All around me were half-slaughtered victims of love, tossing about in agony. There was a nymph-like beloved with cypress-like form and tulip-like face, Ruthlessly playing havoc with the hearts of the lovers.

Sufism[ edit ] Many of the major historical ghazal poets were either avowed Sufis themselves like Rumi or Hafiz , or were sympathizers with Sufi ideas.

It is the intense Divine Love of Sufism that serves as a model for all the forms of love found in ghazal poetry.

Others are about "earthly love" ishq-e-majazi , but many of them can be interpreted in either context. Traditionally invoking melancholy, love, longing, and metaphysical questions, ghazals are often sung by Afghan, Pakistani, and Indian musicians. The form has roots in seventh-century Arabia[ unreliable source? In the eighteenth-century, the ghazal was used by poets writing in Urdu.

Among these poets, Ghalib is the recognized master[ unreliable source?

The Kashmiri poet Agha Shahid Ali was a proponent of the form, both in English and in other languages; he edited a volume of "real Ghazals in English". Ghazals were also written by Moti Ram Bhatta — , the pioneer of Nepali ghazal writing in Nepali. Translations and performance of classical ghazal[ edit ] Enormous collections of ghazal have been created by hundreds of well-known poets over the past thousand years in Persian, Turkish, and Urdu as well as in the Central Asian Turkic languages.

Ghazal "Gayaki", the art of singing or performing the ghazal in the Indian classical tradition, is very old.

The Oxford English-Urdu Dictionary

Singers like Ustad Barkat Ali and many other singers in the past used to practice it, but the lack of historical records make many names anonymous. It was with Begum Akhtar and later on Ustad Mehdi Hassan that classical rendering of ghazals became popular in the masses. The categorization of ghazal singing as a form of "light classical" music is a misconception. Classical ghazals are difficult to render because of the varying moods of the "shers" or couplets in the ghazal.

Popularity[ edit ] The ghazal is one of the most popular poetic forms across the Middle East and South Asia. Readings or musical renditions of ghazals, such as at mehfils and Mushairas , are well attended in these countries, even by the laity.

Ghazals are popular in South Asian film music. The ragas to which ghazals are sung are usually chosen to be in consonance with their lyrical content.

Understanding the complex lyrics of traditional ghazals required education typically available only to the upper classes. The ghazal has undergone some simplification in recent years, in terms of words and phrasings, which helps it to reach a larger audience around the world. Modern shayars poets are also moving towards a less strict adherence to form and rules, using simpler language and words sometimes even incorporating words from other languages, such as English - see Parveen Shakir , and moving away from a strictly male narrator.

However, those forms of the ghazal are looked down on by purists of the Indian classical tradition. Singers like Jagjit Singh who first used a guitar in ghazals , Ahmed and Mohammed Hussain , Hariharan , Adithya Srinivasan , Mohammad Rafi , Pankaj Udhas , Satyam Anandjee and many others have been able to give a new shape to the ghazal by incorporating elements of Western music. Ghazals in local languages[ edit ] In North India, in addition to Hindustani , ghazals have been very popular in the Gujarati language.

Some notable ghazals of those prominent writers have been sung by Bollywood playback singer Manhar Udhas. Renowned ghazal singer, and pioneer of Telugu ghazals, Ghazal Srinivas popularized the ghazal in Telugu. Srinivas also introduced ghazal singing in Kannada , and Ghazals in Kannada were written by Markandapuram Srinivas. Unlike in a nazm , a ghazal's couplets do not need a common theme or continuity.

Each sher is self-contained and independent from the others, containing the complete expression of an idea. However, the shers all contain a thematic or tonal connection to each other, which may be highly allusive. History[ edit ] Origins in Arabia[ edit ] The ghazal originated in Arabia in the 7th century, [10] evolving from the qasida , a much older pre-Islamic Arabic poetic form.

The popularity of ghazals in a particular region was usually preceded by a spread of the Arabic language in that country. In medieval Spain, ghazals written in Hebrew as well as Arabic have been found as far back the 11th century. It is possible that ghazals were also written in the Mozarabic language.

Ghazals in the Arabic form have also been written in a number of major West African literary languages like Hausa and Fulfulde. These "Arabo-Persian" ghazals introduced two differences compared to their Arabian poetic roots.

Firstly, the Persian ghazals did not employ radical enjambment between the two halves of the couplet, and secondly, the Persian ghazals formalized the use of the common rhyme in both lines of the opening couplet "matla". Early Persian ghazal poetry 12th to early 13th century [ edit ] The Persian ghazal evolved into its own distinctive form between the 12th and 13th centuries.

Many of those innovations created what we now recognize as the archetypical ghazal form. The 'Early Persian poetry' period spanned approximately one century, from the Ghaznavid era which lasted until till a little after the Mongol Invasion.

Apart from the movement towards brevity, this period also saw two significant and lasting changes to the ghazal form. The first change was the adoption of the Takhallus , the practice of mentioning the poet's pen-name in the final couplet called the 'maqta'. The adoption of the takhallus became a gradually accepted part of the ghazal form, and by the time of Saadi Shirazi — AD , the most important ghazal poet of this period, it had become de rigueur. It was famous all around the Indian subcontinent in the 18th and 19th centuries[ unreliable source?

Shekar shekan shavand hamah totiane Hind Sugar-shattering excited , have become all the parrots poets of Hind , Zin qande Parsi keh beh Bangaleh mi ravad.

That this Persian candy [ode], that to Bengal goeth. This period coincided with the early Islamic Sultanates in India, through the wave of Islamic invasions into the region in that period. The 13th century poet and musician Ameer Khusrow is considered the first Urdu poet.

During the reign of Sultan of Bengal Ghiyasuddin Azam Shah , the city of Sonargaon became an important centre of Persian literature , with many publications of prose and poetry.

The period is described as the " golden age of Persian literature in Bengal". Its stature is illustrated by the Sultan's own correspondence with the Persian poet Hafez.

When the Sultan invited Hafez to complete an incomplete ghazal by the ruler, the renowned poet responded by acknowledging the grandeur of the king's court and the literary quality of Bengali-Persian poetry.

Now it is more likely to lean towards romantic themes[ unreliable source? Unconditional, superior love[ edit ] Layla visits Majnun in the wilderness; Indian watercolour held by the Bodleian Library.

The story of Layla and Majnun is one of the most famous Arabic tales of unrequited, unconditional love Can usually be interpreted for a higher being or for a mortal beloved. Love is always viewed as something that will complete a human being, and if attained will lift him or her into the ranks of the wise, or will bring satisfaction to the soul of the poet. Traditional ghazal law may or may not have an explicit element of sexual desire in it, and the love may be spiritual.

The love may be directed to either a man or a woman. Most often, either the beloved has not returned the poet's love or returns it without sincerity or else the societal circumstances do not allow it.

The lover is aware and resigned to this fate but continues loving nonetheless; the lyrical impetus of the poem derives from this tension.
