Some brief overview of this book
As Byatt observes in her new intro. to this volume, FitzGeralds 19th-century lyrical translation of Omar Khayyams Rubaiyat forever changed the landscape of English poetry. FitzGeralds own verse delicate & piercing, with a mixture of hedonism & melancholy adapted itself well to what he perceived to be Khayyams original intent to revel in the pleasures of the moment, forsake the folly of attempting to control ones life, & disavow religious succor outright. In FitzGeralds hands the Persian poets brief, evocative verses some 800 years old at the time became a cohesive whole.
Illustrated by Edmund Dulac. Omar Khayyam (1048-1122) was a Persian mathematician, astronomer, and philosopher who was not known as a poet in his lifetime. These verses lay in obscurity until 1859, when FitzGerald published a free adapation of this Persian poetry.
As a result, The Rubaiyat became one of the best-known and most often quoted English classics.
