Description from the publisher: Forty-three years in the writing, The Masnavi was Rumi’s greatest work, and one of the most important books in the study of Sufi ideas. Of Rumi, Professor A. J. Arberry remarked, ‘It can well be argued that he is the supreme mystical poet of all mankind’; and of The Masnavi, Idries Shah says, ‘To the Sufi, if not to anyone else, this book speaks from a different dimension, yet a dimension which is in a way within the deepest self’.
