The Mathnawi of Jalaluddin Rumiby Reynold A. (edt) Nicholson
Synopses & Reviews
Mawlana Jalal al-Din Rumi's great poem, the Mathnawi, is one of the best known and most influential works of Muslim mysticism. Nicholson's critical edition is based on the oldest known manuscripts, including the earliest, dated 1278 and preserved in the Mevlana Museum at Konya. It remains the standard text and is provided with diacritical marks to assist the student. The prose translation, similarly, is intended to be an exact and faithful guide to the Persian. The commentary, useful both for specialists and others, explains textual questions, traces Rumi's sources and cites many parallels to his ideas.
