The Exhaustive Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam—With Roots/Relateds, Lore, and Metaphysics (Hybrid Lulu 11x8.5)

ByAustin Torney

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This (Volume 1 & 2) illustrated and illuminated 11x8.5 hardcover 800 page presentation of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam is meant to be the final and exhaustive rendering of Edward FitzGerald’s 115 quatrains that he transmogrified from Omar’s Farsi Arabic. The breadth and depth of FitzOmar has been greatly expanded upon herein by the collection and improvement of the FitzGerald-based root quatrains, plus variants and related Omar quatrains from the public domain, along with my own quatrains, and Positor’s, and putting their illustrated quatrains right after the best FitzOmar rendition selected from his four versions—which overall pictorial presentation beats just reading though some very long texts, such as the Bodleian and Calcutta manuscripts. Some nonessential material has been removed so as to contain the best in one volume.
