Description
"When the great Persian poet Rumi met Shams, his spiritual teacher, the soul-shattering and soul-making encounter and the friendship and ultimate loss that followed became the stuff of poetic legend. In this collection of work culled from the much longer book colloquially referred to as 'The Shams,' popular Rumi translator [Charles] Barks focuses on ravishing poems of love and loss that can be read as sexual, relational, spiritual, or all three, for in the context of Rumi's embracing philosophy, soul and body and emotion are not separate but parts of the great mystery of earthly life, a question whose answer is love. Here are some of the most beautiful love lyrics ever spoken (Rumi composed orally rather than in writing), direct and passionate and profound: 'out of eternity / I turned my face to you, and into / eternity / we have been in / love that long.' Barks' translations are justly famous for their bell-like clarity and sharp simplicity. A highly desirable book, in all senses of desire."Booklist
