Plot / Summary
Why is a 700-year-old mystic named Jelaluddin Rumi the best-selling poet in America? The answer to that question is simple: Coleman Barks.

From his immensely popular translation of Rumi to his featured appearances on public television, this award-winning poet has almost single-handedly brought ecstatic Sufi poetry into the mainstream of English-language readers. On I Want Burning, listeners will join Barks in an inspired evening featuring three literary legends of the 14th century Middle East: Jelaluddin Rumi, Hafiz (all-time favorite poet of the Persian world), and Lalla, the astonishing Kashmiri woman poet, singer, and dancer.

Includes more than 50 poems, accompanied by vocals, pan flute, harmonium bells, and hand drums.
