Tapping into a major, yet little-known theme of the 11th century poet's writings, this collection of new translations describes the mystical experience that occurs in the meeting of the eyes of the lover and beloved, parent and child, friend and soul mate, and reveals the unique place of human desire, love, and ecstasy.
