This grayscale illustrated and illuminated 356 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 Persian 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 inspired quatrains, and some of Positor’s.
There are also annotations, side stories, elaborations, and tangents presented, as well as my deep metaphysical explorations and solutions to Omar’s quandries.
Thus the book is fully complete, giving Rubaiyat readers a whole lot more to explore—and ever worth revisiting.
What a puzzle it was to put together!
