The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, as revealed by the brilliant fifth edition translation of Edward Fitzgerald, with the lush illustrations of Edmund Dulac, is art that speaks to both the aesthetic and intellectual foundations of the human spirit. It exemplifies the qualities that define art. The 10th century Persian poet, mathematician and astronomer was unquestionably a genius. His quatrains express some of the deepest feeling and thoughts ever put to paper by the hand of man. The translation and compilation of 101 quatrains of Omar Khayyam's Rubaiyat by Edward Fitzgerald has become recognized as a separate entity, a work of art above and beyond the original, which has added immeasurably to the English language itself. With the artistic renditions of Fitzgerald and Dulac, "The Illustrated Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam" will inspire everyone it touches. This 50-page colored special edition is designed to be collected, treasured and gifted to close friends and loved ones.
