1987

Designed and printed by Rebecca Gaver in an edition of 1,000 copies


I was acquainted with Agha Shahid Ali during his time as a professor at Hamilton College, and I was struck not only by his passion for poetry and language in general, but by his zest for life. It is life in all its fullness that speaks out through Shahid's poetry --his words beguile with humor, insight and empathy for the human condition. Poetry was important to Shahid - and to me, it seemed poetry was central to his life.

THE WIKIPEDIA ARTICLE ABOUT AGHA SHAHID ALI:
Agha Shahid Ali (February 4, 1949, New Delhi - 8 December 2001, Amherst, Massachusetts) was an American poet of Kashmiri ancestry and upbringing.
His poetry collections include "A Walk Through the Yellow Pages", "The Half-Inch Himalayas", "A Nostalgist's Map of America", "The Country Without a Post Office", Rooms Are Never Finished (finalist for the National Book Award, 2001). His last book was" Call Me Ishmael Tonight, a Collection of English Ghazals". His poems are featured in "American Alphabets: 25 Contemporary Poets" (2006) and many other anthologies.

Ali was also a translator of Faiz Ahmed Faiz ("The Rebel's Silhouette; Selected Poems") and editor ("Ravishing DisUnities: Real Ghazals in English"). He was widely credited for helping to popularize the ghazal form in America.
Ali taught at the MFA Program for Poets & Writers at University of Massachusetts, Amherst, as well as creative writing programs at University of Utah, Baruch College, Warren Wilson College, Hamilton College and New York University. He died peacefully, in his sleep, of brain cancer in December, 2001. He was laid to rest in Northampton, Massachusetts.
Amitav Ghosh, a renowned English author and Ali's close friend wrote about him after his death in 'The Ghat of the Only World'. James Merrill, an American Poet, had a very significant impact on Agha Shahid Ali's poetry.
