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 listeners, making the ecstatic, spiritual poetry of 13th-century Sufi mystic Rumi more popular than ever.

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

Disappointed

I have never read Rumis writings although I have seen the occasional Instagram post with a poem of his.

As I listened to it, I was really not impressed. It felt like something was off or missing. I wasn't sure if it was the translation or just the poems themselves.

Then I looked at some of the bad reviews and saw that the translator doesn't speak farsi and that this is just not a good translation. That is a bad western modernization of Rumi. Those accusations made sense after listening to the book.

I think you can still draw wisdom from this and certain poems, but ultimately I recommend looking elsewhere

A gnostic says little, but inside...

"A gnostic says little, but inside he is full of mysteries."
- Rumi

God I love Rumi. Obviously, I'm not the only one. But beyond just poetry, I have always loved the mystical side of the major religions. Sufism, Zen, the Kabbalists, and gnostic anything. I think there is a truth that floats in the dance and patter of thy mystics that the dogmatic and the bureaucratic impulses of religion miss. Still, it isn't just Rumi's take on God (although I could make an argument that ALL his poems thread back to God), but his take on friendship, love, sex, wine, nature, etc., that all stand out. Rumi feels like a silk strand that connects the earth to the divine. It twists and flutters, but never breaks. His words just dance and remind us that the divine exists and the divine is closer than we imagine.

I read this book right as the Coronavirus hit, but previous to this recent apocalypse, I took my wife and kids to Istanbul and one of the highlights was watching the dervishes in Galata twirl as the poetry of Rumi was chanted in a small, beautiful space, men spinning to God while the world seemed ready to veer into chaos.

Scandalous, blasphemous and slyly anti-Islamic

Nothing to do with Rumi’s writings. This is a false title. This is covert agenda of demonizing Islam and Prophet Mohammed. Making fun of Muslims, their beliefs. Some of the stories are outrageous and totally unacceptable.
