About the book:

A Rubaiyat is a collection of poems or verses, and The Rubaiyat attributed to Omar Khayyam is as controversial, fascinating and evocative today as it was in his lifetime (c1050-1123). The precise beauty of the imagery, now as then, jolts us into a sense of our transience, evoking humility and wonder in the face of creation. Some experts tend to see The Rubaiyat as a rather perverse document, placing the life of the senses above that of the intellect. Another possible view of these immortal verses is that all the mundane images are metaphors of the spirit.
