Jalal al-Din Muhammad Rumi (1207-73), is the greatest mystical poet of Persia, and perhaps the greatest of any language. His vast body of poetry includes a lengthy epic of religious mysticism, the Mathnavi, and more than three thousand lyrics and odes, many of which came to him while he was in a state of trance.

Discourses of Rumi (in English) by A. J. Arberry is one of the books that all poetry lovers should have this book.

A. J. Arberry (1905-69) was Sir Thomas Adams professor at Cambridge University. In his lifetime he contributed more than seventy books.

Rumi poetry is an ecstatic poetry; it unravels the roots of our being and urges us to surrender to love and love alone.

This book is the best choice for those who want to get to know the deep concepts of Persian poems.
