The Mathnawi of Jalalu'ddin Rumi, Vol 5, Persian Text Hardback
Edited by Reynold A. Nicholson
Part of the Gibb Memorial Trust Persian Studies series
Mawlana Jalal al-Din Rumi's great poem, the Mathnawi, is one of the best known and most influential works of Muslim mysticism.
Nicholson's critical edition is based on the oldest know manuscripts, including the earliest, dated 1278 and preserved in the Mevlana Museum at Konya.
It remains the standard text and is provided with diacritical marks to assist the student.
The prose translation, similarly, is intended to be an exact and faithful guide to the Persian.
The three volumes of English translation can either be bought as a set, or individually; together they comprise a complete translation.
Volume 5 comprises the Persian text of Books V and VI.
