The work begins with a description and analysis of the conditions existing in the thirteenth-century Persia. It then proceeds to analyse the formative period of Rumi's life. The story of Rumi is perhaps the only example in the history of literature of a writer, at first entirely devoted toprose, suddenly bursting forth into poetry in his middle age, and becoming the greatest mystical poet of all times. In 1261 Rumi begins the monumental work of writing the Mathnawi. Towards the end of the book, the author deals with Rumi's thought and provdes translations of those portions of theMathnawi which had previously not been available in English.
