"Sufi Poems: A Medieval Anthology" is a selection of poems from the golden period of Sufism especially chosen and translated from the Arabic by the distinguished scholar Dr Martin Lings. "Sufi Poems" provides us with the opportunity to read a treasury of virtually untouched works of Arabic Sufism.---In "Sufi Poems", Dr Lings-the author of numerous best-selling works on Sufism and a published poet in his own right-brings together selections, including poems here translated for the first time, from the giants of Sufism. These include Rabia, Ibn al-Farid and Ibn Arabi, as well as Hallaj and Ghazali. With such a selection, Dr Lings offers us a taste of the inner life of Sufism at its most intoxicating. Preceding the selection from each of the poets is an introduction to the life of the poet placing him or her in the context of Arabic Sufi poetry. "Sufi Poems" is published as a bi-lingual Arabic-English edition, which will be of interest to all those wishing to read the original Arabic and will also be helpful for university students of Arabic.
