Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 ... Page 6 The Rubaiyat Depending on the sources of reference that one chooses, Omar Khayyam is believed to have composed somewhere between 200 and 600 Rubaiyat (quatrains). Some are known to be authentic and are attributed to him, while others seem to be combinations or corruption of his poetry, and whose origins are more dubious. The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam is among the few masterpieces that has been translated into most languages, including English, French, German, Italian, Russian, Chinese, Hindi, Arabic, and Urdu. The most famous translation of the Rubaiyat from Farsi into English was undertaken in 1859 by Edward J. Fitzgerald. It appears that in many of his translations, he has combined a few of the Rubaiyat to compose one, and sometimes it is difficult to trace and correspond the original to the translated version. However, he has tried his utmost to adhere to the spirit of the original poetry. The Farsi collection presented in this web page is almost universally believed to be authentic and or his own original composition. At this time, it does not include all the Rubaiyat, though a significant proportion. For the benefit of the non-Farsi speaking reader, I have included two translations. One is as a literal translation, with the aim of conveying the wording of the original poetry, leaving it to the reader to draw his/her own conclusions. And another is a "meaning" translation, with the intention of conveying the spirit of the poetry to the reader, (at least as understood by this author.)

Statue of Omar Khayyam mar Khayyam lived between 1044 and 1123 CE and his full name was Ghiyath al-Din Abul Fateh Omar Ibn Ibrahim Khayyam. Omar Khayyam was an outstanding mathematician and astronomer. He was also well known as a poet, philosopher, and physician. In the "History of Western Philosophy", Bertrand Russell remarks that Omar Khayyam was the only man known to him who was both a poet and a mathematician. Omar Khayyam reformed the solar calendar in 1079 CE. His work on Algebra was highly valued throughout Europe in the Middle Ages.Apart from being a scientist, Khayyam was also a well-known poet. In this capacity, he has become more popularly known in the Western world since 1839, when Edward Fitzgerald published an English translation of his Rubaiyat (quatrains). This has since become one of the most popular classics of world literature. It should be appreciated that it is practically impossible to exactly translate any literary work into another language, what to talk of poetry, especially when it involves mystical and philosophical messages of deep complexity. Despite this, the popularity of the translation of Rubaiyat would indicate the wealth of his rich thought.

Omar Khayyam

(Nishapur c. 1050- Nishapur 1122) Persian mathematician and poet.
Omar Khayyam ('Omar the tentmaker') was educated as a mathematician and astronomer, and worked at the royal court as astronomer. His works on algebra and geometry gave him an elevated position in his own time.
In 1077 he issued an important work that solved problems with the mathematics of Euclid, problems mathematicians in Europe managed to solve only 5-600 years later. From 1074 to 1079 Khayyam worked on a reform of the calendar system. The new system was used until 1925 in Persia (now Iran
It is for his poetry that he now is best remembered, collected in Rabayat , even if it now is believed that a large part of the 1,000 four-line stanzas cannot be attributed to him. Omar Khayyam's fame in the West came with the paraphrase by the British Edward Fitzgerald in 1859. The true Rabayat , the Iranian one, has poems covering four subjects:

He was called Khayyam [tentmaker] probably because of his father's occupation. The details of his life are mostly conjectural, but he was well educated and became celebrated as the outstanding mathematician of his time. As astronomer to Sultan Malik Shah, he was one of a group that undertook to reform the calendar. Their work led to the adoption of a new era, the so-called Jalalian or Seljuk era, beginning Mar. 15, 1079. Although he wrote a number of important mathematical studies, Omar's fame as a scientist has been greatly eclipsed in the West by the popularity of his Rubaiyat, epigrammatic verse quatrains. The work was little known in Europe until the freely paraphrased English translation of them was first published by Edward FitzGerald in 1859. This influenced all subsequent evaluations of his poetry, even among native speakers of Persian, where FitzGerald's translation led to a new appreciation of his output. FitzGerald omitted many of the quatrains (which were independent and unconnected) and rearranged them into a unity expressing his conception of Omar's philosophy; it is, however, impossible to establish definitely that many of the nearly 500 quatrains attributed to Omar are really his work. The hedonism of his verse often masks his serious reflections on metaphysical issues. The verses have been offered in literally hundreds of editions.

    This paper presents an overview of the life of Omar Khayyam, born on 18 May 1048 at Nishapur, the provincial capital of Khurasan. The writer explores all aspects of his amazing life, as painter, mathematician, musician, writer and philosopher. The paper begins with his early life in Persia through to his death in Nishapur on 4th December 1131. The writer believes that Omar Khayyam was an outstanding astronomer and astrologer and his contributions to this field are invaluable still today. The paper includes a number of drawings of the man and examples of his writing.
    From the Paper:
    "Omar Khayyam was well known as a poet, philosopher, mathematician, astronomer and physician. His full name was Ghiyath al-Din Abu'l-Fath Omar ibn Ibrahim Al-Nishapuri al-Khayyami. A literal translation of the name al-Khayyami means "tent maker" which maybe derived from his father's trade or he may have practiced this skill at one time. Khayyam played on the meaning of his own name when he wrote; "Khayyam, who stitched the tents of science, Has fallen in grief's furnace and been suddenly burned, The shears of Fate have cut the tent ropes of his life, And the broker of Hope has sold him for nothing!"."

    Home Page Scientists OMAR AL-KHAYYAM Algebra would seem to rank first among the fields to which he contributed. He made an attempt to classify most algebraic equations, including the third degree equations and, in fact, offered solutions for a number of them. This includes geometric solutions of cubic equations and partial geometric solutions of most other equations. His book Maqalat fi al-Jabr wa al-Muqabila is a master- piece on algebra and has great importance in the development of algebra. His remarkable classification of equations is based on the complexity of the equations, as the higher the degree of an equation, the more terms, or combinations of terms, it will contain. Thus, Khayyam recognizes 13 different forms of cubic equatlon. His method of solving equations is largely geometrical and depends upon an ingenious selection of proper conics. He also developed the binomial expansion when the exponent is a positive integer. In fact, he has been considered to be the first to find the binomial theorem and determine binomial coefficients. In geometry, he studied generalities of Euclid and contributed to the theory of parallel lines. The Saljuq Sultan, Malikshah Jalal al-Din, called him to the new observatory at Ray around 1074 and assigned him the task of determining a correct solar calendar. This had become necessary in view of the revenue collections and other administrative matters that were to be performed at different times of the year. Khayyam introduced a calendar that was remarkably accurate, and was named as

    I. Introduction
    II. Life of Omar Khayyam
    Omar's full name was Ghiyathudin Abu Fath ibn Ibrahim Khayyam Nishapori . He was born in the year 1048 AD in Khorasan, an independent state which part of now lies in Iran, including the birth place of Omar. His last name Khayyam, meaning "tent maker" and is probably a reference to the occupation of his ancestors. As it was common among his countrymen to derive their names from their occupations or place of birth. Omar received his early education in Nishapur in subjects such as Arabic, The Koran, various religious disciplines, mathematics, astronomy and literature.
    Omar is well known in English-Speaking countries as a result of Edward FitzGerald's popular translation in 1859, the Rubaiyat , a collection of quatrains. However Omar was an outstanding mathematician and astronomer. He worked on two major projects of

    02 Mar 2004 17:39 Medieval Persian mathematician, astronomer and poet. In the modern world, he's most famous in the last capacity, largely thanks to the 19th century English translation of his Rubiyyat ("Quatrains") by Fitzgerald. My grandfather, who is himself a Persian poet, tactfully describes that book as "a classic of English verse, inspired by Khayyam"; it apparently bears very little relation to the actual Rubiyyat . I hope to someday learn enough Persian to judge for myself. - The only other English translation of Khayyam I've found is by Robert Graves (!), and is more than usually full of his Goddess -nonsense, so I don't trust that either. permanent link for this note RSS feed for this note Notebooks Hosted, but not endorsed, by the Center for the Study of Complex Systems
