Rumi wrote and collected myriad tales for his classic, mystical work The Mathnawi. Arthur Scholey provides an inviting taster to Rumi's great work. Here are stories of magic birds, of ants, mice, hares and lions, of camels, donkeys, and parrots - including some of the earliest parrot jokes on record - tales of beggars, saints, lovers, thieves, fools, slaves and kings, and the angel of Death. As with parables, they reverse and upset expectations, directing sudden shafts of insight and understanding. This is a terrific and absorbing collection. Binding is red cloth with gold lettering on the spine. 175 decorative pages. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.
