The essential poems of the inspirational thirteenth-century Persian philosopher, scholar and mysticThe founder of the order of the Whirling Dervishes, Rumi was also a poet of transcendental power. His verse speaks with the universal voice of the human soul and brims with exuberant energy and passion. Rich in natural imagery, from flowers to birds and rivers to stars, the poems have an elemental force that has remained undiminished through the centuries.

Their themes – tolerance, goodness, the experience of God, charity and awareness through love – still resonate with millions of readers around the world. Translated by Coleman Barks with John Moyne
