Maryam Mafi left Iran in 1977 to study Sociology and Literature at Tufts University in the United States. While reading for her Master?s degree in International Communications in Washington DC, she began translating Persian literature. Her thesis on the relationship of literature and social change and the bridging together of cultures has been a pivotal force in her work.
A breathtaking new collection of translations of poems by Rumi, one of the world?s most loved mystical teachers. Beautifully packaged and illustrated with Persian calligraphy, this is an ideal gift for every MBS reader.
