Rumi: The Book of Love : Poems of Ecstasy and Longing Paperback

5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Now in paperback, this is the definitive collection of America's bestselling poet Rumi's finest poems of love and lovers.

In Coleman Barks' delightful and wise renderings, these poems will open your heart and soul to the lover inside and out. 'There are lovers content with longing. I'm not one of them.' Rumi is best known for his poems expressing the ecstasies and mysteries of love of all kinds - erotic, divine, friendship -and Coleman Barks collects here the best of those poems, ranging from the 'wholeness' one experiences with a true lover, to the grief of a lover's loss, and all the states in between: from the madness of sudden love to the shifting of a romance to deep friendship - these poems cover all 'the magnificent regions of the heart'.
