Love: The Joy That Wounds: The Love Poems of Rumi
An 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 Lassaâd Metoui, the poems bear remarkable power and emotional intensity, reflecting on the complexities of love, passion, pain, and faith. With exuberant imagination and rhythms that echo the ecstatic dance of the whirling dervishes, 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.
