The Illustrated Rumi

A Treasury of Wisdom

The bestselling poet in America today, thirteenth-century Sufi mystic Jalalu'ddin Rumi has inspired and enlightened thousands with his playful, passionate work celebrating the sacred in everyday life. Now the spiritual wealth of Rumi's stories and poetry in translation are accompanied by rare and wonderful art in the Sufi and Islamic tradition. This fresh rendering brings new life to these incomparable parables, which have transcended time, place, culture, and religion to speak directly to the hearts and souls of contemporary readers. With a foreword by Huston Smith, the work of this inimitable mystic is here in prose and poetry taken from all the works of the master.

Each parable, such as The King and the Handmaiden, The Grocer and the Parrot, The Ugly Old Woman, and The Man Who Was Always Being Swindled, are related as Rumi might have related them to his fascinated audiences as he whirled in meditation and trance. But each story also has a spiritual message, a holy essence that applies across all faiths, uttered from the heart of Islam. Each of these messages is provided here in a modern rendering that keeps the flavor of this unique period of history, of culture, and of inspired, passionate beauty.

The translators, Philip Dunn and Manuela Dunn Mascetti, have created and authored many bestselling volumes, including Huston Smith's Illustrated World's Religions, Professor Stephen Hawking's The Illustrated A Brief History of Time, Thomas Moore's The Illustrated Care of the Soul, plus their own works, which include The Buddha Box, Kama Sutra: The Erotic Art of Love, Ganesba: Remover of Obstacles, and many more.

Synopsis:

The Sufi mystic Rumi's best-loved poems and stories are now restored to their authentic setting as delightful teaching tales, illustrated with exquisitely inspiring Sufi and Islamic art. 150 illustrations & photos.

Synopsis:

“One could live a complete life based on the wondrous words of Rumi. But add images and story, and you have more than enough for a lifetime, an overabundance…an excess of wisdom, beauty, and pleasure. This book will be one of the few I take wherever I go.” —Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul and Original Self

This richly illustrated collection delivers a fresh and inspiring way to read Rumis most intimate poems of love, rage, sadness, joy, and longing. No other edition of Rumis poetry combines his singularly passionate words with authentic, rare, and wonderful Sufi and Islamic art. Readers moved by Sappho, Hafiz, Rilke, or by Coleman Barks translations of Rumi will relish the beautiful imagery and new translations in this unique volume of some of the finest works by “the most popular poet in America” (Time magazine).
