Overview

The words of the thirteenth-century mystical teacher and poet, Jalal al-Din Rumi, resonate down the centuries, touching the hearts of readers from all cultures. Gathered under a thematic spectrum of headings, from "The Sufi Way" to "Living in the Spirit," this vibrant anthology offers a distillation of the most beautiful and profound wisdom written by the great Persian writer. With a clarity which demonstrates her understanding of and familiarity with Rumi's work, Mabey’s heartfelt selections are short, well chosen, and presented in accessible modern English. Drawing on his most famous works, the essence of the world’s bestselling poet is captured within these pages and offered to all. Jalal al Din Rumi (1207-73 CE) was born in the Persian province of Khorassan (modern day Afghanistan). He is best remembered for his poetry: the Masnavi, a narrative poem of 25,000 verses in six volumes, is widely considered to be the greatest spiritual masterpiece ever written. Juliet Mabey is editorial director of Oneworld publications, which she founded with her husband, Novin Doostdar. She is also the compiler of the bestselling Words to Comfort, Words to Heal (ISBN: 978-1-85168-154-9)
