"This is a useful addition to the literature on Rumi, especially since most of the articles try in one way or another to deal with topics of relative importance for understanding the poet." Iranian Studies

"Students of Persian mystical poetry will enjoy these individual pieces....careful study of his writings remain timely." John Renard, Journal of the American Oriental Society

"...students and specialists will both benefit from Poetry and Mysticism in Islam . Amir Hussain, MESA Bulletin

Book Description

Maulana Jalal al-Din Rumi (1207-1273 AD) was one of the greatest poets and mystics of the Islamic world. This book is an examination of his spiritual and literary heritage. Annemarie Schimmel, the recipient of the Eleventh Giorgio Della Vida Award in Islamic Studies, writes that Bno other mystic and poet from the Islamic world is as well known in the West as Rumit. The scholars who share in her tribute have all added new dimensions to an understanding of Rumi and to his impact on the Islamic world.
