Overview

Kabir: Ecstatic Poems by Kabir

Originally published in 1976, with more than 75,000 copies in print, this collection of poems by fifteenth-century ecstatic poet Kabir is full of fun and full of thought. Columbia University professor of religion John Stratton Hawley has contributed an introduction that makes clear Kabir's immense importance to the contemporary reader and praises Bly's intuitive translations.

By making every reader consider anew their religious thinking, the poems of Kabir seem as relevant today as when they were first written.
