New translations of Rumi have proliferated in recent years, yet most of them are either boringly pedestrian or reminiscent of a marshmellow - so sickly sweet that any lover of subtle flavours soon tires of them. Raficq Abdulla, on the other hand, has produced a collection of new interpretations which are intense yet intimate, ecstatic yet full of subtlety, an introduction to one of the world's outstanding mystics yet beautiful poetry in their own right. Richly illustrated with Islamic miniatures and priced very reasonably, "Words of Paradise" will make a delightful gift for all those who are seeking to learn about Rumi's way to God, "the Beloved" - but equally for those who enjoy the rich sensuousness of beautiful love poetry.
