Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám (Le Gallienne)

Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám (Le Gallienne) by Omar Khayyám
By: (1048-1131)

Richard le Gallienne was an English poet and critic, who, although unfamiliar with the Persian language, had a profound interest in the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. In 1897 he published a collection of 211 quatrains, which was based on earlier English translations, in particular the prose version by Justin Huntly McCarthy. A expanded edition, containing fifty additional quatrains was published in 1901, and this has been used for the present recording.
