The Essential Rumi

Barks is one of my favorite translators of Rumi's poems.  Probably because I am American and we seem drawn to free verse for its lack of rules and structure...

Coleman Barks is the best translator of Rumi poems, hands down! Not one other translator can capture the esence that the words of Rumi express!

First, when I was apart from you, this world did not exist, nor any other. Second, whatever I was looking for was always you. - Rumi

The Love Poems of Rumi: by Jalal al-Din Rumi, Compiled by Deepak Chopra

Rumi is amazing!  Increasingly, Rumi is being recognized as the unique spiritual genius he is, as someone who is fused at the highest level and with the greatest possible intensity the intellect of a Plato, the vision, passion and soul-force of a Christ or Buddha, and the extraordinary literary gifts of a Shakespeare.

As the nectarine vision of Rumi hovers ever nearer the “main stream” of our culture, this intriguing meeting of words and visuals, of ancient tradition and modern interpretation, brings together the timeless poetic blossomings of Rumi, the 13th century Sufi poet and philosopher, with some extraordinary, contemporary, full-colour collages that nimbly and awesomely evoke the richness of Rumi’s teachings.
