Coleman Barks, the man most responsible for making the 13th-century Sufi mystic the bestselling poet in America, presents a one-of-a-kind volume that captures Rumi's beloved passion, daring, and insights into the longing of the heart.

Publisher Description

“The Soul of Rumi” is renowned poet Coleman Barks' first major assemblage of newly translated Rumi poems since his bestselling “The Essential Rumi.”

Coleman Barks presents entirely new translations of Rumi's poems, published for the first time in The Soul of Rumi. The poems range over the breadth of Rumi's themes: silence, emptiness, play, God, peace, grief, sexuality, music, to name just a few. But the focus is on the ecstatic experience of human and divine love and their inseparability, conveyed with Rumi's signature passion, daring, and insights into the human heart and the heart's longings.

Rumi will transform you, in ways you didn t know you needed transforming. —Jerry Stahl, in Shout NY"
