Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam
The author of “Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam” is Omar Khayyam. Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam is a collection of Poems of Omar Khayyam. These quatrains were written in Farsi in the fifth and sixth centuries AH and mainly express his philosophical views. These poems were hidden and not compiled during Khayyam’s lifetime due to the prejudice of the people. Omar Khayyam was a Persian polymath, mathematician, astronomer, philosopher, and poet. He was born in Nishapur, during the rule of the Seljuks and at the time of the First Crusade. As a mathematician, he is most notable for his work on the classification and solution of cubic equations, where he provided geometric solutions by the intersection of conics. Khayyam also contributed to the understanding of the parallel axiom. As an astronomer, he designed the Jalali calendar, a solar calendar with a very precise 33-year intercalation cycle: 659 that provided the basis for the Persian calendar that is still in use after nearly a millennium. There is a tradition of attributing poetry to Omar Khayyam, written in the form of quatrains. This poetry became widely known to the English-reading world in a translation by Edward FitzGerald (Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, 1859), which enjoyed great success in the Orientalism of the fin de siècle.
