5.0 out of 5 stars Good, 2 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Selected Poems of Rumi (Dover Thrift Editions) (Paperback)
Excellent translation from R.A. Nicholson. Much more to it than neutered translations of Barks and few other translators who all strive to turn the medieval islamic mystic ( a mystic in this context is an inspired scholar) into some very vague 'spiritual' teacher. Amazon also sells the Mathnawi in three volumes all translated by R.A. Nicholson as well. Nicholson or A.J. Arberry seem so far the only translators who have really tried to be faithfull to wordings Rumi has used throughout his works instead of being focused solely in delivering gentle quotations for get-well cards. Really nice.

A perfect book for those who love Rumi and those who want to

I love the footnotes - and it's a simple to read,

You can pass it to your children and they will love it as well.
