Item description for Love Mad: Poems of Rumi by Rumi & Kambiz Homayounfar...
Rumi, or The Master as he is referred to in Greater Iran, recited his poetry in a state of ecstasy induced by music and dance, while his chief disciple Hussam inscribed the couplets and odes. Widely recognized as the greatest mystical poet of all time, Rumi's significance has moved UNESCO to designate 2007 as "World Molana Rumi Year" in celebration of the 800th anniversary of his birth. This new collection offers poems of longing, bliss and divine love. Translated into modern English and as fresh today as when originally composed, every verse is a delight, bringing meaning and spirituality from above into daily life. This new translation is from the original Persian texts, rather than a reworking of previous translations, thus providing original renditions of the Rumi's poetry.
