Editorial Reviews

Editorial 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 poetry is truly remarkable.” Huston Smith, bestselling author of The World’s Religions
“Delightful…Barks sparklingly demonstrates once again why his free-form interpretations of [Rumi’s] poetry…have been a major impetus for the current Rumi vogue.” Publishers Weekly
The Essential Rumi is a rare and precious book that will stir the hearts of Rumi devotees and win many new converts.” Body Mind Spirit
“The thirteenth-century Persian mystic’s words continue to resonate, particularly in this translation, which offers a remarkably contemporary voice.” Oprah.com
