The Ruba'iyat of Omar Khayyam, Paperback

The Ruba'iyat of Omar Khayyam Paperback



Philosopher, astronomer and mathematician, Khayyam as a poet possesses a singular originality.

His poetry is richly charged with evocative power and offers a view of life characteristic of his stormy times, with striking relevance to the present day.

This translation by Peter Avery and John Heath-Stubbs is beautifully and lavishly illustrated in colour with numerous examples of Persian miniature painting.

It also contains a valuable introduction and several appendices, including an essay on Persian painting.
