Overview


Addressing the ultimate desire in mankind for meaning and fulfillment, the poetry of Jalal al-Din Rumi transcends temporal and cultural boundaries, providing a rich tapestry of wisdom and beauty for lovers of poetry the world over. Through his writing, the spiritual journey inwards becomes an outward journey into the arms of the all encompassing, a journey towards overcoming the superficialities of life, and towards embracing the divine in everyday experience. Profound and widely admired throughout history, his words are as relevant today as ever, still resonating with contemporary concerns of both East and West alike. Commemorating the 800th anniversary of Rumi’s birth, this beautiful volume draws from the breadth of Rumi’s work, spanning his prolific career from start to finish. From the uplifting to the mellow, it will prove inspirational to both aficionados of Rumi’s work and readers discovering the great poet for the first time.

Meet the Author


Jalal al Din Rumi (1207–1273) was born in the Persian province of Khorassan (modern day Afghanistan). A disciple of the Sufi tradition, he was the figurehead of the Whirling Dervishes. Of his prolific career as both poet and scholar, his poetry is what he is best remembered for: the Masnavi, a narrative poem of 25,000 verses in six volumes, is widely considered to be the greatest spiritual masterpiece ever written.

Franklin D. Lewis is an associate professor in the department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago. He is a specialist in Persian literature and author of Rumi: Past and Present, East and West, also published by Oneworld.
