Ghazals in the Afternoon

Sun, 29 September 2013 // 04:00 PM
Bowery Poetry, 308 Bowery, NYC (map)

The ghazal--full of rhyme and lyric ambiguity and once derided as an aesthetic irrelevance--lives on in the 21st century. Join us for a round table discussion and recitation of ghazal poetry in old and new languages, in translations and original versions. Experience how this form, seemingly constricted and bound by convention, is being put to new purposes and pushed to new heights.

Featuring: Dwaipayan Banerjee Andrew McCord Ali Mir Josna Rege Purvi Shah
