At last, a translation of Rumi's Masnavi which, without ever being pedantic or obscure, is both faithful to the original Persian and to Rumi's teaching. I highly recommend it. This is only the first book of the Masnavi, though (the title is incomplete and misleading) and I am looking forward to the translations of the next five books. A brilliant and moving piece of work.

Great introduction - clear meanings from readings - interesting poetic structure and rhyme - comfortable/convenient size to carry with you when you travel especially.

I have been reading the Masnavi of Rumi in Farsi and since my Farsi sis not that fluent, I purchased this book to follow along in the English. It is one of the best translation I have read so far. Of course, nothing beats the original in Farsi!!
