It's always hard to say which translation of classic material is best, both because it is inherent in the definition of a classic work to lend itself to multiple interpretations, and because unless you can read the original you have little to go on in assessing accuracy or even whether the spirit of a work has been captured. Having said that, I can say that Harvey's is my very favorite rendition of Rumi.

O What a dance! A dance in the kaleidoscopic swirl of divine imagery. In the the infinite tenderness of grace, and the rapturous subtlety of truth's whisper. Amidst the 'astounding lucid confusion' of it all.

The never-ending dance between form and emptiness, between concept and paradox, more so as the mind is subsumed under the wordless thrill of experience. As the sound of the 'mystic water' that is drenching the universe like a rainfall of light makes the heart leap in the helplessness of ecs

This is a glorious, burning gem that will set your mind and heart alight. It perfectly captures the true meaning of love and the mystic's vision of unity. Harvey interprets Rumi's poetry with such fierce passion it is impossible to read this book without having an emotional apocalypse. Read full review:

This was my second time around for this book. It is not a book just to read, It is ancient wisdom to re-member as well as an inspiring enlightened discussion into Rumi's poetry and purpose.
