Descripción

Hardcover. 120 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.4in.A loaf of bread, a jug of wine, and thou . . . is one of the most famous poetic lines ever written. One of the great achievements of poetry, The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, was written in Persian in the 11th century. Omar Khayyam was a consummate philosopher and astronomer whose work extended far beyond the Rubaiyat, but it is this work that survives today, a testament to the power and grace of Islamic and Persian culture at this time. The Rubaiyat is one of the most lyrical poetic works ever composed, and English-speaking readers know Khayyams work through the translation of Edward Fitzgerald, which is presented here. The title Rubaiyat itself is derived from the Arabic word for four, and the poems are written in a series of quatrains. Plays that include Eugene ONeills Ah, Wilderness! and phrases such as The Moving Finger are inspired by The Rubaiyat. As did Shakespeares lines, so do Khayyams exquisite expressions, that are able to speak even in translation, still move the world. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. N° de ref. de la librería 9781603129305

Sinopsis:

"A loaf of bread, a jug of wine, and thou . . ." is one of the most famous poetic lines ever written. One of the great achievements of poetry, The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, was written in Persian in the 11th century. Omar Khayyam was a consummate philosopher and astronomer whose work extended far beyond the Rubaiyat, but it is this work that survives today, a testament to the power and grace of Islamic and Persian culture at this time. The Rubaiyat is one of the most lyrical poetic works ever composed, and English-speaking readers know Khayyam's work through the translation of Edward Fitzgerald, which is presented here. The title "Rubaiyat" itself is derived from the Arabic word for "four," and the poems are written in a series of quatrains. Plays that include Eugene O'Neill's Ah, Wilderness! and phrases such as "The Moving Finger" are inspired by The Rubaiyat. As did Shakespeare's lines, so do Khayyam's exquisite expressions, that are able to speak even in translation, still move the world.
