Summary
"Commemorating the 800th anniversary of Rumi's birth, this volume of new translations draws from the breadth of his work, spanning his prolific career in all its varied aspects and voices." "Working directly from the original Persian, Franklin Lewis brings to this translation not only the latest scholarship in Persian and English, but a deftness and lightness of touch that betrays his profound sensitivity to Rumi's mystical and philosophical background, and a deep understanding of his historical and literary context, enabling Lewis to capture not only the great poet's ideas, but also his modes of expression." "Complete with a detailed introduction and notes, this is a perceptive, insightful, and moving collection that will prove inspirational to both keen followers of Rumi's work and readers discovering the great poet for the first time."--BOOK JACKET
