I'm also This I'm also That
This is one of my favorite poems of Rumi. Maulana is at his best in conveying his melancholic and distressed state of mind in this very personal and heartfelt poem. Rumi's is simply letting all his frustrations out, and just ignoring any and all regards for the often painstakingly managed poetic rhyming formulas and methods of classical Persian poetry. Reading in between the lines, one can clearly sense Rumi's profound sadness, frustrations, and the ever growing pain of longing. Rumi's unorthodox, even revolutionary, poetic style of repeating the same line "I'm also this I'm also that" at the end of his poem is simply ground breaking. One can hardly find a Persian poet who could match Rumi's bold and deliberate challenging of the established writing style of classical or modern Persian poetry.

New Year in Rumi's Poetry
"Claude Chalhoub was born in Beirut and is successful both as a classical violin player as well as with his blend of Arabian and Western music.The beauty of Claude Chalhoub’s music is that it doesn’t sound "new“ at all. It sounds familiar, even if you have never listened to Arab music (or classical music) at all. As if it had always been there. It’s as natural as breathing. And that’s what great art is all about – making the difficult seem easy.." For complete biography of Claude Chalhoub, please visit his Facebook Page
