Summary
"Jalaloddin Rumi was a poet and mystic of the highest attainment, but he was first and foremost a spiritual teacher. His verses lead the reader along the path of divine love, towards an understanding of the deepest truth that underlies reality. Rumi draws on a vast range of sources, from fables to stories from daily life and religious tradition, to compose a remarkable text, which is a ladder to the spiritual world." "Alan Williams's translation into blank verse conveys the poetry of the original Persian couplets, while his introduction discusses how the modern reader might approach Rumi's writing. This edition also includes notes, a chronology of Rumi's life and further reading."--BOOK JACKET
