Book Description Brill. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Rumi and the Hermeneutics of Eroticism, Mahdi Tourage, This is the first systematic examination of the esoteric significance of the bawdy tales and explicit sexual passages present in R?m?'s (d. 1273) "Mathnaw?," a masterpiece of medieval Perso-Islamic mystical literature and theosophic teachings. Using the relevant features of postmodern theories as strategic conceptual tools, and drawing on the recent interpretations of medieval kabbalistic texts, it is a fascinating examination of the link between the dynamics of eroticism and esotericism operative in R?m?'s "Mathnaw?," In some of these bawdy tales, the phallus is used as an esoteric symbol. The book concludes that these tales are used primarily to communicate esoteric secrets, particularly when this communication is contemplated along gender lines, mediated through erotic imagery, or expressed in sexual terms.
