Ghazals Inspired by Hafiz's Ghazals by Paul Smith There is really no equivalent to the ghazal (pronounced guz'el) in English poetry. As a matter of fact, the ghazal is a unique form and its origin has been argued about for many centuries. Some say that the first was composed by Adam, the first poet and Perfect Master. Many ghazals Paul Smith composed while translating the Divan of Hafiz he incorporated into his 3 volume novel/biography Hafiz of Shiraz... as those of Muhammad Gulandam. Recently he published a book of ghazals 'Beloved & Lover' inspired by couplets and first lines given by his Spiritual Master Meher Baba (Huma) and in this book he has composed ghazals with the first couplet from his translations of the ghazals of Hafiz, that are also mainly about Meher Baba. Introduction: About Paul Smith, Life & Work of Meher Baba, The Ghazal, Life & Times & Poems of Hafiz. Correct form has been achieved. 293 pages.COMMENTS ON PAUL SMITH'S TRANSLATION OF HAFIZ'S 'DIVAN'."It is not a joke... the English version of ALL the ghazals of Hafiz is a great feat and of paramount importance.

Ali Akbar Shapurzman, translator of works into Persian and knower of Hafiz's Divan off by heart.
