The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám (Persian: رباعیات عمر خیام‎‎) is the title that Edward... More > FitzGerald gave to his translation of a selection of poems, originally written in Persian and numbering about a thousand, attributed to Omar Khayyám (1048–1131), a Persian poet, mathematician, and astronomer. A ruba'i is a two-line stanza with two parts (or hemistichs) per line, hence the word rubáiyát (derived from the Arabic language root for "four"), meaning "quatrains".The nature of a translation very much depends on what interpretation one places on Khayyam's philosophy. The fact that the rubaiyat is a collection of quatrains—and may be selected and rearranged subjectively to support one interpretation or another—has led to widely differing versions. Nicolas took the view that Khayyam himself clearly was a Sufi.

This tandem edition written by Chris Sebastian Douglas, features a collector's manuscript - rare as much as unique to literary value - for two distinguished reasons: At the outset, the... More > translation of the "Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam" has been interpreted into prose to retain a maximum proximity to its original form. It already enjoyed international popularity of grand proportions - ever since Dante Gabriel Rossetti brought the works of Edward G. Fitzgerald, to light, appearing firstly in London in 1859. Secondly, "Exantus' Quatrains" although expressed in a comparable manner of those of Omar Khayyam, have a distinctive character in behavior and philosophy, outside the inevitable common observations between these two styles, which complete one another most veritably.< Less
