1 Review
A new book of verses of Rumi by an award-winning translator and poet. This selection captures Rumi in a rare mood and these are some of Rumi's most passionate and heartfelt expressions, each poem resonating with the intensity and fire rarely seen in English language before. Shiva says, "Rumi -- I am constantly reminded -- is a miracle. Everything about him is absolute magic. Poetry in perfect rhyme and meter poured out of him as he whirled for hours on end, or as he fell into various states of ecstasy and rapture. There is movement in every verse of Rumi. There is music, rhythm and breath in most of his poems in Persian."
