After suffering thru the boring likes of Donne, Keats, Dante, Chauncer, etc. in Lit. class; I had given up on ever being able to enjoy classical poetry. Than I discovered Rumi. No one can possibly describe love and life the way he does. No one can possibly do it more beautifully. No one can read this and not say 'OMG, he must be describing MY life!'. But everyone can appreciate the joy and appreciation of life that his poems instill on you. It is impossible to put this book down.

THE ESSENTIAL RUMI is a more than worthy introduction to the enchanted spiritual poetics of Jalaluddin Rumi.Rumi¿s famed mad dancing and his inspired utterances of pure genius gave birth to a major religious order known today as the Whirling Dervishes. His writings have influenced not only Persian literature but world literature and world spirituality. His richly inspired work has been translated and published in languages all over the globe. In English alone, there are more than a dozen writers and scholars who frequently publish volumes of Rumi¿s work. Interpretations of his poetry have been recorded as musical compositions by such diverse individuals as motivational speaker Deepak Chopra and famed music producers Graeme Revell and Roger Mason, among numerous others. In addition, calendars, biographies, web sites, and discussion groups all based on the life and passion of Rumi are in plentiful supply. Rumi himself in many parts of the world is greatly revered as a saint. When he died, representatives from every major religion hailed him as one of their own.
