9780061905834: Rumi: The Big Red Book: The Great Masterpiece Celebrating Mystical Love and Friendship (Rough Cut)

“Really, what other book would anyone ever need?” —Naomi Shihab Nye, author of Honeybee

“Elegant and exquisite.” —Deepak Chopra, author of Muhammad, Jesus, and Buddha

The Big Red Book is a poetic masterpiece from Jalaluddin Rumi, the medieval Sufi mystic whom Time magazine calls “the most popular poet in America.” Readers continue to be awed and inspired by Rumi’s masterfully lyrical, deeply expressive poems, collected in volumes such as The Illustrated Rumi, The Soul of Rumi, and the bestselling The Essential Rumi. With The Big Red Book, acclaimed poet and Rumi interpreter Coleman Barks offers a never-before-published translation of a crucial anthology of poems widely considered to be one of Persian literature’s greatest treasures.

Product Description:

Considered one of the masterpieces of world literature, The Big Red Book is perhaps the greatest....

Review:

“Coleman Barks is a pioneer and renown scholar on Rumi, the great Sufi. In his elegant and exquisite way, Coleman has made Rumi as popular as Shakespeare to the world and continues to inspire us with the Rumi’s ecstatic poetry.” (Deepak Chopra, author of The Shadow Effect and Jesus)

“Really, what other book would anyone ever need?” (Naomi Shihab Nye, author of Honeybee)

“Coleman Barks found Rumi floating in some Georgia lake and brought him back to life. What a blessing! Rumi says, ‘Some nights stay up until dawn, as the moon sometimes does for the sun.’ Coleman has stayed up all night, and every reader is grateful.” (Robert Bly, National Book Award-winning poet and translator)

“Rumi’s Big Red Book tells us: ‘Compassion builds a door, Restlessness cuts a key.’ I am forever grateful to Coleman Barks, restless, yearning to find the bridge from Rumi and Shams to the world we presently inhabit. He is truly to Be Loved for making this ‘transaction with beauty’…” (Debra Winger, Actress)

“Without question, we can credit Coleman Barks with making Rumi accessible to American readers through his modernized renditions of the best-known poems of the great Islamic mystic.... Richly sensual yet never flowery, Barks’ language emphasizes Rumi’s embodied spirituality in a book to savor.” (Booklist (starred review))

“An emeritus English professor at the University of Georgia, Barks has spent 34 years working on Rumi’s poetry — you could even say that Rumi has been the secret companion musician Barks has danced to.” (Los Angeles Times)

“Barks has become internationally renowned for his translations.... Rumi: The Big Red Book is the culmination of his work.” (Shambhala Sun)
