The Nayrang-e 'Ishq is a historically important Persianate mathnavi from Mughal India, not least because its composition earned the patronage of the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb. However, until now it... More > has evaded a close examination of the philosophical themes relating to classical Islamic theosophy and metaphysics that are encoded within it. This book is the first to approach the deep inner layers of meaning within this masterpiece of late medieval Indian literature. The characteristic treatments of allegory in Persianate poetry, relating to mystical themes in theory and practice, and then the motifs chosen in particular by the poet, are examined. This precedes an identification and exploration of the cosmological and cosmogonic doctrines that appear to be encoded within the poem. Neoplatonic influences, in addition to the influence of ibn Arabi, are discussed.< Less

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. Excerpt from: Hint: You can preview this book by clicking on "Preview" which is located under the cover of this book.< Less

The Quatrains of Omar Khayyam By Joobin Bekhrad
Paperback: $7.36

The impact the medieval Persian polymath Omar Khayyam has had on civilisation is perhaps best reflected in the reverence held for his groundbreaking mathematical findings and celebrated Robaiyat... More > (Quatrains), not only in his native Iran, but also all corners of the world. Exhorting readers to seize the moment and enjoy the pleasures of life, as well as warning them about the ephemerality and infidelity of the world, Khayyam’s philosophies are just as relevant today, if not more than during the turbulent times in which he lived. Providing neither a loose interpretation nor word-for-word translation of Khayyam’s poetry, Bekhrad has striven to preserve the poetic qualities and spirit of the original Persian quatrains and provide as accurate a translation as possible of each and every stanza. The present volume contains the original Persian poems as selected and categorised by the late Sadegh Hedayat, in addition to an introduction by Dr Sayed Hassan Amin.< Less
