It traces the changing and sometimes challenging relationship between the scholarly Rumi and the unpredictable dervish Shams, who suddenly appeared in his life, and through it the deepening of Rumi's experience of love and his insight into mysticism. We also get occasional glimpses of Rumi the man and a sense of the times in which he lived.

There are detailed notes on the poems and a ground-breaking discussion of text and context"--
