Rumi the Book of Love by Barks, Coleman
Rumi the Book of Love: Poems of Ecstasy and Longing
by Barks, Coleman
 
I hear nothing in my earbut your voice. Heart has plundered mind of its eloquence. Love writes a transparent calligraphy, so on the empty page my soul can read and recollect. The Sufi mystic and poet Jalaluddin Rumi is most beloved for his poems expressing the ecstasies and mysteries of love in all its forms -- erotic, platonic, divine -- and Coleman Barks presents the best of them in this delightful and inspiring collection. Rendered, as only Barks alone can, with freshness, intensity, and beauty, these startling and rich poems cover everything 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 to immersion in divine love. Rumi, the ultimate poet of love, explores all "the magnificent regions of the heart" as he opens you to the lover within. Coleman Barks has made this medieval poetic and spiritual genius of Persia (present-day Afghanistan) the most popular poet in America today. This seductive volume reveals Rumi's charms and depth more than any other. There are lovers content with longing. I'm not one of them.
