The present review is to study the influence of English Ghazal in today's world literature due to its immense popularity in its themes and structures. This review addresses the ambiguous nature of the Ghazal and its effects in the advancements of language in ghazal form. Ghazal has established and broadened its domain, discovered a distinct spot with the spectacular mix in nations such as England, France, Germany or Spain. And the reason might include its inherent beauty, philosophical, humility and adds a hint of romance partially or fully to all aspects of life more so it has not ceased to fascinate a large number of poets. It is true that a large number of poets from different countries have indulged in writing Ghazal poetry, but just a few have learned to perfect this form. From the other point of view, few poets have solely adopted the basic sideways of Ghazal; however, the ghazal by these writers have unique features which make them peculiar. This paper attempts to establish some writers of ghazal who have acquired fame and expertise in doing so in English.
