Oxford: Oneworld, 2001. Soft cover. 16mo - over 5¾ - 6¾" tall. Fine. Item #012727
Soft cover. 190; xxviii, 171 pp. This new anthology brings together two classic translations of work by the thirteenth-century Persian mystic, Julalu'l-Din Rumi. The first part constitutes an inspiring collection of mystical poems: delicately rhythmical versions of over a hundred short passages, together with brief yet illuminating notes. The second half of this anthology comprises some of the most important stories from the Mathnawi, Rumi's most famous work, rendered with all the liveliness and immediacy that makes this narrative poem such a masterpiece.
