About this product
- DescriptionAn immortal voice speaks on the greatest poetic theme in this English-language selection of the works of Rumi. Enriched by the lush calligraphic illustrations of Arabic artist Lassaad Metoui, the poems bear remarkable power and emotional intensity, reflecting on the complexities of love, passion, pain, and faith. These songs of the spirit offer an intimate introduction to the poet's genius, as well as a sublime meditation on the mysteries of love.
