    1. Does anyone else have a problem with a kind of annoying white dude translating Rumi!? "Like This" is one of my all-time favorite poems, but Barks' translation leaves me wanting. Check out Fatemeh Keshavarz's translations instead.


    2. Again, spending more time with this after reading it this semester. There is a plan for imitation poems---------update - 25 October 2013I have read this several times. Seven or eight times.
