"Rumi is best known for his poems expressing the ecstasies and mysteries of love of all kinds--erotic, divine, friendship--and Coleman Barks collects here the best of those poems, ranging from the 'wholeness' one experiences with a true lover, to the grief of a lover's loss, and all the states in between: from the madness of sudden love to the shifting of a romance to deep friendship--these poems cover all 'the magnificent regions of the heart'."--From publisher.
