Rowdy, ecstatic, and sometimes stern, these parables reveal new and very human properties in Rumi's vision. Included here are the notorious 'Latin Parts' that Reynold Nicholson felt were too unseemly to appear in English in his 1920s translation. For Rumi, anything that human beings do -- however compulsive or ludicrous -- affords a glimpse of the inner life.

Review: Delicious Laughter: Rambunctious Teaching Stories from the Mathnawi of Jelaluddin Rumi

User Review  - Matt - Goodreads

Beautiful raw (sometimes uncomfortably so) poems filled with wisdom. A fresh take on self-realization, old-school style. Caught me off-guard and put me out of my comfort zone, as a great work of art should. Read full review

Pretty much x-rated. Not a moral judgement, but that was what he wrote. Read full review
