The Veiled Suite: The Collected Poems
Beginning with the impassioned, never-before-published title poem, here is the life's work of a beloved Kashmiri-American poet.
Agha Shahid Ali died in 2001, mourned by myriad lovers of poetry and devoted students. This volume, his shining legacy, moves from playful early poems to themes of mourning and loss, culminating in the ghazals of Call Me Ishmael Tonight. The title poem appears in print for the first time.
