Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Rumi (1207-1273) is the foremost poet, famous for his lyrics and for his didactic epic Masnavi, a collection of mystical tales and discourse considered second only to Shahnameh. Rumi lived in the Seldjuk capital Konya, and his influence on literature, carried by his Sufism, spread with the expansion of the Ottoman Empire and lasted centuries.

--This text refers to the mp3_cd edition.

Review

The Essential Rumi is a rare and precious book that will stir the hearts of Rumi devotees and win many new converts.

-- "Body Mind Spirit"

Delightful...Barks sparklingly demonstrates once again why his free-form interpretations of [Rumi's] poetry...have been a major impetus for the current Rumi vogue.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

If Rumi is the most-read poet in America today, Coleman Barks is in good part responsible. His ear for the truly divine madness in Rumi's poetry is truly remarkable.

-- "Huston Smith, bestselling author of The World's Religions"

The thirteenth-century Persian mystic's words continue to resonate, particularly in this translation, which offers a remarkably contemporary voice.

-- "Oprah.com" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
