The Essential Rumi

The Essential Rumi, translations by Coleman Barks with John Moyne

The 13th-century Persian mystic Jelaluddin Rumi is undoubtedly one of the most magical poets in history. This translation of his work is as easy to read as you will get. This collection covers poems about everything from bewilderment, emptiness, and silence to flirtation, elegance, and majesty. The word “ecstatic” is often used to describe his work. If you’re looking to uplift your spirit, take a read!

Contributed by Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy.
