The Masnavi, Book Two

Jalal al-Din Rumi
Translated by Jawid Mojaddedi

Oxford World's Classics

  • The first ever verse translation of Book Two of the Masnavi, the Persian mystic Rumi's greatest poem, and the first translation of any kind for over eighty years.
  • This is the sequel to Mojaddedi's translation of Book One (OWC, 2004), winner of the Lois Roth Prize from the American Institute of Iranian Studies, and critically applauded.
  • The Masnavi concerns man's predicament in his search for God, and is a mixture of folk tales and sacred history, accessibly translated into rhyming couplets.
