Description
Rumi at the age of thirty-seven meets SHAMS-E-TABRIZI (the sun of Tabiriz) “a weird figure wrapped in coarse black felt, who flits across the stage for a moment and disappears tragically enough.” Shams has variously been described as: “being extremely ugly;” “a most disgusting cynic;” and having an “exceedingly aggressive and domineering manner.” Jalalaldin who until then had no interest or liking for poetry “found in the stranger that perfect image and Divine Beloved which he had long been seeking. He took him away to his house, and for a year or two they remained inseparable…Rumi’s pupils resented their teacher’s preoccupation with the eccentric stranger, and vilified and intrigued against him until Shams fled to Damascus. Rumi sent his son to bring him back; but the tongues of his jealous traducers soon waged again and…in 1247, the man of mystery vanished without leaving a trace behind.”
