Omar Khayyam: The Persian Text with Paraphrase, and the First and Fourth Editions of Fitzgerald's Translation / Edition 1 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Taylor & Francis
This book, first published in 1931, shows in a simple, sound and lucid manner how the genius of two poets (Omar Khayyam and FitzGerald) brought together by the genius of an Orientalist (Professor Cowell) culminated in a very strange, very beautiful and profound English poem. This book is concerned with the genuineness of the verses ascribed to Omar Khayyam, and consists of a comparison of the original Arabic, a paraphrase, and FitzGerald's first and fourth editions.
