David Stone Martin Revisits Omar Khayyam

Thursday, May 22, 2014

"Lovely as they are, the verses of Omar Khayyam sound slightly out of tune in the panorama of our time. Yet what they say to us is as true today as it was eight centuries ago. here then, is the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, recast into contemporary terms - in the way Mr. Khayyam would write them if he were living among us now." ~ from the dust jacket of Omar Khayyam Revisited, 1974
