While the poems are indeed beautiful to the common reader who doesn't know Rumi well, in reality, Barks has done an awful job. Mawlana Jalaluddin Rumi (may God be pleased with him) was one of the greatest Scholars in Islam and Barks has taken out all references to Islam from the poems (basically in every line).
Nevertheless, Rumi's work still transcends Barks' unexplainable butchering of his poems.
