The book, as a delightful and inspiring collection of Rumi’s poems is great, easily readable, and recommended for Sufism lovers and those having a taste for Sufism poetry.

The Sufi mystic and poet Jalaluddin Rumi is famous for his poems expressing the Sufi ecstasies and mysteries of love in all its forms. Delivered with freshness, intensity, and beauty, Coleman Barks collection has the amazing and rich poems ranging from the completeness one experiences with a true lover, to the grief of a lover's loss, and all the phases of true love. The immersion in divine love is clearly reflected in the verses. The magnificent regions of the heart as explored by Rumi, the poet of love, are to make one reach to the lover within. This volume reveals Rumi's expression of Love as spiritual and divine. Rumi’s divine charms and depths are visible in the poems. Looking for annihilation in the Divine, Rumi stretched out in many forms of love, from his adoring love for his teacher Shams to an admiration for the natural world. Rumi's numerous metaphorical expressions of love and the importance of unifying with it makes this a wonderful reading.
