9780143121619: The Purity of Desire: 100 Poems of Rumi

The first full-length volume of Rumi’s cherished verse by bestselling poet Daniel Ladinsky

Renowned for his poignant renderings of Hafiz’s mystical texts, Daniel Ladinsky captures the beauty, intimacy, and musicality of another of Islam’s most beloved poets and spiritual thinkers. In collaboration here with Nancy Owen Barton, and with learned insight and a delicate touch, they explore the nuances of desire—that universal emotion—in verse inspired by Rumi’s love and admiration for his companion and spiritual teacher, Shams-e Tabriz. These poems thoughtfully capture the compelling wisdom of one of Islam’s most revered artistic and religious voices and one of the most widely read poets in the English language.

About the Author:

Daniel Ladinsky’s books include A Year with Hafiz, I Heard God Laughing, The Subject Tonight Is Love, and The Gift, as well as a collection of translations of poems by twelve mystics and saints, Love Poems from God. He lives in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Nancy Owen Barton is a literary agent, educator, and movement therapist. She has collaborated with Ladinsky since the publication of his first Hafiz volume in 1996.

Review:

Praise for Daniel Ladinsky’s translation

“There are universes inside Hafiz, a lineage of masters. Daniel Ladinsky follows the playfulness; the rascal moves well.” —Coleman Barks
