Description

Timeless and eternal, the poetry of Jalal al-Din Rumi is loved the world over. The best-selling poet from America to Afghanistan, his words are as relevant today as ever, still resonating with contemporary concerns of both East and West alike. Commemorating the 800th anniversary of Rumi's birth, this beautifully presented volume draws from the breadth of Rumi's work, spanning his prolific career from start to finish. From the uplifting to the mellow, Franklin's Lewis polished translation will prove inspirational to both keen followers of Rumi's work and readers discovering the great poet for the first time.

Author Biography

Jalal al Din Rumi (1207-73 CE) was born in the Persian province of Khorassan (modern day Afghanistan). A disciple of the Sufi tradition, he was the figurehead of the Whirling Dervishes. Of his prolific career as both poet and scholar, his poetry is what he is best remembered for: the Masnavi, a narrative poem of 25,000 verses in six volumes, is widely considered to be the greatest spiritual masterpiece ever written. Today, Rumi is the United States' best-selling poet. Franklin D. Lewis is Associate Professor in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago. He is a specialist in Persian literature and author of Rumi: Past and Present, East and West: The Life, Teachings and Poetry of Jalal al-Din Rumi, also published by Oneworld.
