many of the poems are vague and not as attractive as the poems in the essential Rumi.

however there are some lines that make the whole book worth while

Barks included many poems in this classic book. The way the text was divided in itself is poetic where he used a mixture of the holy names of God in Islam, some of his sophic heroes and star signs. He starts with introduction to each chapter reflecting on his experiences which is in some way is almost mystical. This sometimes is a distraction and on other occasions is enriching of the text. I like also the arabic caligraphy of the names of God using the sulus writing. The translation varied depending on the writer but they are mostly clear and elegant

Although I prefer some other Rumi translations better than Coleman Bark's, this Rumi book is my "vademecum".
I really love it.

This book is interesting and inspiring... it's a 'have to have'.

Rumi's philosophy is based on love, something sadly lacking in the world. Reading this book reminds us of that, brutally.
