by Rumi

This revised and expanded edition of The Essential Rumi includes a new introduction by Coleman Barks and more than 80 never-before-published poems.

Through his lyrical translations, Coleman Barks has been instrumental in bringing this exquisite literature to a remarkably wide range of readers, making the ecstatic, spiritual poetry of thirteenth-century Sufi Mystic Rumi more popular than ever.

The Essential Rumi continues to be the bestselling of all Rumi books, and the definitive selection of his beautiful, mystical poetry.

I might have to come back to that because sometimes, I just gift "The Essential Rumi," which is a collection of poetry by Coleman Barks that I think is really, really beautiful or poetry by the poet. So sometimes, it'll be poetry books that I'll gift.
