Love: The Joy That Wounds: The Love Poems of Rumi

R 299

DESCRIPTION:

Rumi s love poems are both mystical and a mystery. Reflecting the complexities of passion and faith, they have a remarkable power and emotional intensity, with an exuberant imagination and rhythms, which echo the ecstatic dance of the whirling dervishes. They embrace the complexities and paradoxes of love separation, cruelty, and break-up and convey love s power, emotional intensity and its passion. Though seemingly addressed to a lover, they encompass the universe in their imagery and are metaphors of love in its physical form. The calligraphy of Lassa d Metoui illustrates Rumi s words to renew their sense of love s meaning and enhance Rumi s thoughts on love.
