Trained in Sufism—a mystic tradition within Islam—Rumi founded the Sufi order known to us as the Whirling Dervishes, who use dance and music as part of their spiritual devotion. Many of Rumi’s poems speak of a yearning for ecstatic union with the divine Beloved. But his images bring the sacred and the earthy together in startling ways, describing divine love in vividly human terms.
This volume draws on a wide variety of translations—from the early twentieth century to the present—of Rumi’s deeply moving, sensually vibrant poetry.
About: A collection of poetry by the medieval Persian sage reflects the author's Sufi beliefs, a mystic tradition within Islam, in works that speak of a yearning for ecstatic union with the divine Beloved and describe divine love in sensuous human terms.
