This innovative study date with the hitherto unnoticed reflection of a Sufism in English literature from the Ages to the 20th century as parallelism and congruent images The 200 and authors/texts analyzed here include masters like Chaucer, Malory, Sidney, Shakespeare. Donne, Pope. Blake, Wordsworth, Shelley, Byron, Scott Tennyson, Browning. Yeats, Robert Graves, Somerset Maugham, Ted Hughes and Doris Lessing Suffix echoes and images have subsisted in the Western literature, including English, for centuries, and influenced its creative imagination. But interest in Eastern spirituality has been particularly in evidence in the post- World War Ii era often soured by misprojected theories of the clash of civilizations’. The post-9/11 scenario has further fanned Islamophobia across the world. Simultaneously, however, a fresh quest for harmony and transcultural understanding is also under way. Since Sufism also fosters this humanistic trend, and is generally recognized as a more acceptable face of Islam, Sufic literary studies are likely to gain wider and deeper appreciation with the advance of globalization. Indeed, genuine literature, as a factor of human integration, is a prerequisite of global understanding. The present tical discourse, the only work on the subject so far, marks a step in this direction.
