In 1244 the brilliant poet Rumi and the wandering dervish Shams of Tabriz met and immediately fell into a deep spiritual connection. THE GLANCE taps a major yet little explored theme in Rumi's poetry - the mystical experience that occurs in the meeting of the eyes of the lover and the beloved parent and child friend and soul mate. Coleman Barks's new translations of these powerful and complex poems capture Rumi's range from the ethereal to the everyday. They reveal the unique place of human desire love and ecstasy where there exists not just the union of two souls but the crux of the universe.
