Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

The 13th century Sufi mystic Jalal al-Din Rumi was a storyteller who spoke like a songwriter--in metered prose and rhyming verse. Whatever the translation (and there have been many), his words always seem to fall like lilting petals, drifting in a delicate pattern toward some grounded truth. This sensually illustrated version offers yet another new translation in which readers will find a mixture of Rumi's parables and poetry interwoven into each story. Thus, readers will start off firmly planted in Rumi's straightforward, storytelling voice. Then, about four paragraphs down, the translators will insert one of his ecstatic poems, then the tone will return to the story voice. It may seem like choppy editing, but it actually swirls and circles around like a joyful Sufi dancer. The chosen tales are all spiritually inspirational, as Rumi always is, yet they are also a pleasure to read as simple stories told by a master. The illustrations and attentive design artfully enhance the grace and fluidity of Rumi's words. --Gail Hudson

Pressestimmen

“This treasury of wisdom will bring you ecstatic spiritual insights and a profound understanding of yourself and theworld. Keep it by your bedside and read a little bit every day. Enjoy each parable and each verse as you would a gourmet menu.” (Dr. Deepak Chopra)

“…exquisitely designed volume… Perhaps the most commendable aspect of The Illustrated Rumi is the Islamic art that provides a luxuriant context for the parables and poems. These designs and plates reveal the truth of the statement from Muslim tradition: ‘God is beautiful and He loves beauty.’” (Spirituality&Practice)

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Amazing Book 27. Juli 2006
Von A.Bassiouny - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a great book. It is professionally translated and the words flow naturally. The introduction is powerful and it has a lot of useful information about the book content and the spiritual life of Rumi. The illustrations are carefully chosen and relevantly placed giving you a persian medeivial aura. Rumi was a great sufi poet who lived in the golden age of the Islamic civilization. His poetry is a guide to spirituality and wisdom. It is deep,simply-written and interesting. Anyone who reads this book will enjoy it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Common heritage of mankind 25. Mai 2005
Von O. Akin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The ultimate source of Rumi`s work is the original work of Mathnawi, in Persian, it has a delicate taste of poetic dimension too, but even without the poetic contribution, Richard A. Nicholson has translated all the 6 volumes of Mathnawi with an excellent translation, eloquent, lovely and elegant. Rumi is an ocean, "The illustrated Rumi" is a very nice sampling taken from these six volumes. The illustrations are taken from the early islamic art, most of which, one has to remind himself, were performed bofore the Renaissance. It has a taste of Arabic Nights in the pictures, what is more important though is the quality of the samples. Nicholson has the best work accomplished, and I recommend it to anybody, to me that book deserves to be written with gold and silver. Still Illustrated Rumi will give an idea of Rumi, especially with the wonderful introduction of Huston Smith, who himself is a leader in religious studies, this book is like cream de la cream of Matnawi as an introduction. The book is worthy of being read carefully at least once. I would recommend reading this book to those people left undecided between a foot long sandwich and a glimpse of the soul.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful book ... 18. Oktober 2012
Von Capt Yossarian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I've been reading Rumi's works for more than 20 years -- it is also quoted favorably in our spiritual services. This is a beautifully presented book -- and the used copy I bought from the Amazon seller was a great bargain ($2.53 for a First Edition, with a gift greeting from the original owner).

I am not a scholar, so I have not had the benefit of some of the 'better' translations and interpretations of Rumi's works. I know that some people harp about Coleman Barks, and how he 'interprets' Rumi in a less-than-scholarly fashion.

I know what I like, though, and this is a wonderful book.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Beyond the Ordinary 14. November 2012
Von Christina Paige - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This collection of stories and passages from Rumi goes far beyond the usual snippets that constitute most translations for minor poets and pseudo-pholosophers. These stories, prose and poetry translations of what were often pure poetry, are much closer to the original. These stories are soul-changing. I'd love to be part of a reader's group that took up these for discussion. And the illustrations, a combination of photographs and reproductions of artisitic masterpieces, bring the stories to life visually.
