Ever since the ghazal was introduced into English poetry, there has been confusion as to what constitutes a ghazal and which poems have a right to be identified as ghazals in English. By tracing the history and development of the ghazal over the more than a millennia and a half that it has been in existence, this article seeks to put recent efforts into perspective. It is hoped that a better understanding of the diverse and changing nature of ghazal writing in the past will help us to envision how the rich variety of contemporary works being written in English today fit into the broader context of ghazal writing.

This article traces the evolution of the ghazal. Starting with the ghazal’s origins in the pre-Islamic Arabian qasîdah, it follows the ghazal’s development in Medieval Arabia and Persia, and its adoption into the literatures of other languages and cultures.
