Rubaivat of Omar Khayyam by Edward Fitzgerald, Rene Bull

The Rubaiyat of the 12th-century Persian poet, Omar Khayyam, is a collection of 75 unique philosophical quatrains. Spiritual in nature, they convey a haunting blend of joy, melancholy & resignation towards life & mortality. Edward Fitzgeralds translation is one of the most renowned works of literature in the English language. Less a translation than a free rendering inspired by the essence of Omar Kha yyams verse, it has never been surpassed by other, perhaps more literal translations, in its euphoric glow & rhythmic beauty. 30 full-color illustrations evoke the mystical & exotic charm of the Orient. Extensive notes.
