SA'IB TABRIZI Poems from the Divan Translation & Introduction Paul Smith. Mirza Muhammad Ali Tabrizi (1601-1676) who used the takhallus of Sa'ib was born in Tabriz. Sa'ib's ancestry goes back to Shams Tabrizi, Rumi's famous spiritual Master. In about 1626 he went to Mecca, then to Herat and Kabul... where he was introduced to Shah Jahan and received at his court. Poets who composed were welcomed and a new style... the 'Indian Style' (Sabk-e Hindi) was carried on from the poems of Amir Khusrau and Fighani and others. He was greatly influenced by the poetry of Hafiz. Sa'ib's 'Indian Style' poems reveal an elegant wit, a gift for the aphorism and the proverb and an appreciation of Sufism. His Divan was important to all succeeding generations of poets. The correct rhyme-structures have been kept in these ruba'is, ghazals and qit'as. Introduction: Life and Poetry, Poetic Forms, Selected Bibliography. Large Paperback 7" x 10" Paperback. Pages 126.
