The Soul of Rumi: A New Collection of Ecstatic Poems

By Coleman Barks

The Soul of Rumi is renowned poet Coleman Barks’ first major assemblage of newly translated Rumi poems since his bestselling The Essential Rumi.

Coleman Barks presents entirely new translations of Rumi’s poems, published for the first time in The Soul of Rumi. The poems range over the breadth of Rumi’s themes: silence, emptiness, play, God, peace, grief, sexuality, music, to name just a few. But the focus is on the ecstatic experience of human and divine love and their inseparability, conveyed with Rumi’s signature passion, daring, and insights into the human heart and the heart’s longings.
