Synopsis

The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam is a selection of poems, originally written in Persian attributed to Omar Khayyám (1048–1131), a Persian poet, mathematician and astronomer. A ruba'i is a two-line stanza with two parts (or hemistichs) per line, hence the word rubaiyat (derived from the Arabic language root for "four"), meaning "quatrains".

Ghiyath ad-Din Abul-Fath Umar ibn Ibrahim al-Khayyam Nishapuri (18 May 1048 – 4 December 1131) was a Persian polymath: philosopher, mathematician, astronomer and poet. He also wrote treatises on mechanics, geography, mineralogy, music, and Islamic theology.
