Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

"The Glance" is a translation of approximately 80 poems selected from the ecstatic "Shams of Tabriz" poetry by Rumi. Translated by Coleman Barks for the first time and introduced with a fascinating and personal essay, these poems serve as a record of the transcendent friendship between Rumi and the Shams of Tabriz. In 1244, Rumi and Shams met and immediately felt a deep spiritual connection to one another. They shared an ultimate friendship, an overarching, oceanic love that encompassed the mind, body and spirit. Rumi and Shams existed in a realm of universal consciousness, where all elements of the body and soul connect. Their relationship was miraculous and clear like water. These poems express a unique place of human desire, longing, and ecstasy. They concentrate on the realm of the glance, that mystical, trancelike experience that occurs in the meeting of eyes between lover and beloved. This poetry is so fresh and moving that Leonard Bernstein requested that it be read to him the night before he died.
