One Hundred Poems of Kabir
Introduction by Evelyn Underhill; Kabir's Poems. The Poetry of mysticism might be defined on the one hand as a temperamental reaction to the vision of Reality: on the other hand, as a from of prophecy. As it is the special vocation of the mystical consciousness to mediate between two orders, going out in loving admiration towards God and coming home to tell the secrets of Eternity to other men; so the artistic self-expression of this consciousness has also a double character. it is love-poetry, but love-poetry which is often written with a missionary intention.
