7. Love poetry

Dates: 21 September - 6 December

What we’ll cover in this session

Sufi mysticism has plenty to say on this most universal of themes: love. We consider Rumi's love poetry as these works in particular have had a great influence both in the East and the West. After discussing The Alchemy of Love, we move on to The Book of Mirdad, an allegorical book of philosophy by Mikhail Naimy.
