About this title


"One of the greatest of all Persian poets, Omar Kayyam was born towards the end of the 11th. century in the northeastern Khorassan region. Thoroughly Epicurean, the poet's philosophy approaches that adopted by many a Western author: 'Drink and make merry' is the refrain that recurs throughout his work." This volume is unique in its use of illustrative Persian miniatures to portray some aspect of the poet's visions.

Language Notes:

Text: English, Persian (translation)
