Mystical Poems of Rumi-Translated by A.J.Arberry
Jalal al-Din Rumi, an author of a vast collection of Persian odes and lyrics, of which a selection is here offered in translation, was born in 1207AD at Balkh, which now lies within the frontiers of Afghanistan and died in 1273 at Konya, in Asiatic Turkey. For an account of his life and times, the reader is invited to peruse the preface to my version of Rumi's Fihi ma fihi, published by John Murray in 1961 under the title Discourses of Rumi; there is nothing I wish to add to what is written there, except by way of stressing the curious circumstances which attended Rumi's transformation from sober theologian and preacher into an ecstatic dancer and enraptured poet.
