Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam
by Omar Khayyam Edward Fitzgerald (Translator)
- 52 PAGES
This edition of one of the best-known poems ever -- as translated by Edward Fitzgerald -- features an introduction by novelist A.S. Byatt and color illustrations by Edmund Dulac. Never mind whether these are really the verses of the 12th-century poet (there is little doubt that Fitzgerald interpreted the original Sufi text through a western lens); the popularity of this book tells much about Victorian fascination with all things "oriental."
