Love Poems of Rumi (Hardcover) (Maulana Jalal Al-Din Rumi & Deepak Chopra & Fereydoun Kia)
about this item
Born Jalal ad-Din Mohammad Balkhi in Persia early in the thirteenth century, the poet known as Rumi (named after the city where he lived) composed works of mysticism and desire that inspired countless people in his own time and throughout the centuries. His poems expressed the deepest longings of the human heart for its beloved, for that transcendent intimacy which is the source of the divine.This slender, beautiful volume consists of new translations by Farsi scholar Fereydoun Kia, edited by Deepak Chopra to evoke the rich mood and music of Rumi's love poems. Exalted yearning, ravishing ecstasy, and consuming desire emerge from these poems as powerfully today as they did on their creation more than 700 years ago.
The well-known author and spiritual counselor presents his favorite poems by the thirteenth-century Persian poet, whose works express the exalted yearnings, ecstatic ravishments, and spiritual visions of medieval Eastern mysticism. 25,000 first printing.
