Synopsis

'The finest and most famous translation ever made, next to the English Bible': few would dispute the justness of this description of Edward FitzGerald's Rubaiyat of Omar Khayydam. How did FitzGerald come to compose this great work? A. J. Arberry has been able to make use, for the first time, of a series of most important unpublished letters written by FitzGerald to his friend and Persian teacher Edward Cowell while the poem was actually in course of construction; he has also for the first time exploited the copies of the Persian original which FitzGerald employed and annotated in his own hand. Professor Arberry thus enables us, so to speak, to look over FitzGerald's shoulder as he wrestled with his great task and to follow step by step the evolution of the Rubaiyat. Includes a facsimile reprint of the First Edition.
