RUMI - 53 Secrets from the Tavern of Love: Poems from the Rubiayat of Mevlana Rumi by Amin

Rumi's poetry has been published in various English editions since the 19th century. And there has been no shortage of Translated bys. Today, through the translations of Coleman Barks, he is the best-selling poet in the English language. The market for his poems is insatiable. He has a loyal following of English readers and serious devotees. Still, in English, Rumi's poems have often been rendered into a literal and academic prose that is awkward and wooden — or into a New-Age idiom that bears little relationship to the author's original text or his context. Professors Amin Banani and Anthony A. Lee come to the rescue with a masterful translation that bridges the academic demand for fidelity to the original Persian text with a sensitive poetic translation that speaks to 21st-century readers.

The book has three sections: 1) a general introduction to Rumi's poetry, 2) translations of 53 short poems, and 3) a groundbreaking essay by Banani on the position of Rumi in Islamic poetry and in world literature.

The poems are presented as lessons on love. The reader is encouraged to treat them as koans to inspire spiritual contemplation.
