This revised and expanded edition of The Essential Rumi includes a new introduction by Coleman Barks and more than 80 never-before-published poems.

Through his lyrical translations, Coleman Barks has been instrumental in bringing this exquisite literature to a remarkably wide range of readers, making the ecstatic, spiritual poetry of thirteenth-century Sufi Mystic Rumi more popular than ever.

The Essential Rumi continues to be the bestselling of all Rumi books, and the definitive selection of his beautiful, mystical poetry.

Industry Reviews

"If Rumi is the most-read poet in America today, Coleman Barks is in good part responsible. His ear for the truly divine madness in Rumi's potrey is truly remarkable."-- Huston Smith, author of "The World's Religions""In this...delightful treasury, Barks sparklingly demonstrates once again why his free-form interpertations of [Rumi's] poetry...have been a major impetus for the current Rumi vogue."-- "Publishers Weekly"

This 13th Century Poet/ Philosopher is still relevant.


I am reading it from cover to cover, but I have noticed that I can just open it at any page to learn a different view of many things in life that may or may not matter.
