Description - FitzGerald's Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam by Adrian Poole

Edward FitzGerald's 'Rubaiyat', loosely based on verses attributed to the eleventh-century Persian writer, Omar Khayyam, has become one of the most widely known poems in the world, republished virtually every year from 1879 to the present day, and translated into over eighty different languages. And yet it has been largely ignored or at best patronized by the academic establishment. This volume sets out to explore the reasons for both the popularity and the neglect.

Buy FitzGerald's Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam by Adrian Poole from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
