The Soul of Rumi presents entirely new translations of Rumi's poems—published for the first time—by Coleman Barks, the man most responsible for making Rumi the bestselling poet in America. Focusing on the ecstatic experience of human and divine love and their inseparability, the poems range over the breadth of Rumi's themes: silence, emptiness, play, God, peace, grief, sexuality, music, and more.

This one-of-a-kind volume captures Rumi's beloved passion, daring, and insights into the longing of the heart as only Barks can do.

Jack Kornfield

The gold of Rumi pours down through Coleman's words. The words leap off the page and dance!
