Spiritual Verses | [Jalaloddin Rumi]

Spiritual Verses

Rumi's Spiritual Verses is the greatest mystical poem in Islamic culture - and of all time. Rumi examines our human separation from reality, love, and truth. He shows how love - neither erotic nor sentimental but divine, by which the universe is held together - enlightens ignorance and dissolves suffering. The first book of the Masnavi is the key to the whole work: It takes off from simple, amusing tales into realms unimaginable, but wholly familiar to the human heart.

    "Not actually unabridged"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Alan Williams' translation is very good, and Anton Lesser's reading is (as always) excellent. The one problem with this audiobook is that it's falsely advertised as unabridged, when it is in fact abridged. It cuts out many of Rumi's tangents, which is too bad because it gives a misleading sense of Rumi's style.
