Paperback - The Quatrains of Omar Khayyam - Persian Poem translated in English. Ready to ship.

The impact that the medieval Persian polymath Omar Khayyam has had on civilization is perhaps best reflected in the reverence held for his groundbreaking mathematical findings and celebrated Rubaiyat (quatrains), not only in his native Iran but also in all corners of the world.

Exhorting readers to seize the moment and enjoy the pleasures of life, as well as warning them about the ephemerality and infidelity of the world, Khayyam’s philosophies are just as relevant today, if not more than during the turbulent times in which he lived.

Providing neither a loose interpretation nor a word-for-word translation of Khayyam’s poetry, Bekhrad has striven to preserve the poetic qualities and spirit of the original Persian quatrains, in addition to providing as accurate a translation as possible of each and every stanza.

Bekhrad has succeeded in capturing the essence of Khayyam’s ‘Robaiyat’ … His rendition offers both clarity and fidelity to the meaning, rhythm, and tones of the original Persian poems.

Joobin’s translation of the ‘Robaiyat’ of Omar Khayyam shows his sensitivity in our times.
