Product Description

What torments the souls of men What would lead a respected scholar and preacher to suddenly lock himself away in a room with a strange man for forty days and nights and then to spring forth illuminated, dancing, ignited with passion and knowledge What leads a solemn scholar to become Rumi, the great Sufi poet and creator of the whirling dervish dance one of the most important figures in world literature

In Rumi: The Fire of Love, acclaimed writer Nahal Tajadod brings to vivid life this ages-old tale of metamorphosis and creative fire. Since the thirteenth century, the story of Rumi and his fifty thousand unforgettable verses has mesmerized the world. Herself a renowned translator of Rumi into French, Tajadod does not hesitate to lift even the most intimate veils. Breathing new life into the mystical and carnal Orient of old, Tajadod delves into the soul of artistry and, embodying the mind of the great poet, uncovers the divine passion of Rumi s work and beautifully displays that when the body and soul stop fighting against one another, they burn from the same flame.

Already in production as a motion picture, Rumi: The Fire of Love is a breathtaking work of modern passion in a longago time.
