Wonderful Site About Ghazals

Once you start reading ghazals, you will probably reach a point where you would like to know more about the form.  This site, The Ghazal Page, run by Gino Peregrini, has wonderful examples of ghazals and many prose entries about the form (including one of mine). Gino posts different forms of ghazals, always with great explanatory notes.  Be sure to read Gino's Ghazal Blog.
