9780048910240: More Tales from the Masnavi

First published in 1963, this work puts into clear and rhythmical English one hundred stories and apologues of the Masnavi of Rumi.

Composed over a period of many years during the thirteenth century, as a manual of instruction and initiation into spiritual life, the Masnavi has long been acclaimed the greatest mystical epic of Islam. The tales were designed to illustrate in human terms the often complex doctrine, and this they do with a wealth of beauty, honour and pathos, as appealing to the modern reader as to the medieval audience to which they were originally addressed. The volume, like its predecessor Tales of the Masnavi, is included in the UNESCO list of representative great works of world literature.

This work will be of interest to those studying Islam and Middle Eastern literature.
