The poetry of mystic Jalal-ud-Din Rumi provides a glimpse into the passionate mind of its creator and the tradition of which it is a part. Dating from the thirteenth century, it does not show its age. Andrew Harvey has compiled a selection of poetry and prose from various sources, including letters and teachings. The collection is a meaningful introduction to a major figure among mystics in the Eastern tradition. Harvey's passion and enthusiasm are intense and consistent with the tradition of mystics. He reads with clarity, and listeners will find this an accessible look at the teachings of Rumi and, more broadly, this genre.
