Ralph Russell is Formerly a Reader in Urdu, School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of LondonReview:
"Ghalib (1797-1869) was, in most critics' estimation, South Asia's greatest poet.... Russell translates Ghalib's Persian and Urdu elegantly and provides a useful elucidation of the formal and rhetorical conventions of classical Persian poetry. The best general introduction to Ghalib available. Highly recommended." --Choice
