Overview

Excerpt from The Persian Mystics: Jalalu'd-Din Rumi

I desire to thank Mr. R. A. Nicholson for his kind and generous permission to use selections from his Divani Shamsi Tabriz, and also his publishers, the Cambridge Press. I am deeply indebted to Mr. E. H. Whinfield for allowing me to use quotations from his rendering of the Masnavi (Trubner's Oriental Series). I also cordially thank Mr. John Hastie for giving me permission to quote a few passages from the late Rev. Professor Hastie's "Festival of Spring" (James Maclehose Sons, Glasgow). The poems quoted from this volume are entitled: "Thy Rose," "I saw the Winter weaving," "Love sounds the Music of the Spheres," "The Souls Love-moved," and "The Beloved All in All." All the other translations from the lyrical poetry of Jalalu'd-Din Rumi are by Mr. R. A. Nicholson.
