Though few translations have had as much impact as Edward Fitzgerald's Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, anyone who wishes to truly appreciate Omar Khayyam needs to read more than one translation. This volume contains Edward Fitzgerald's classic translation with all its variations, Justin McCarthy's elegant and mystical literal translation and Richard Le Gallienne's sharp and poetic version. For the first time the reader can appreciate the range of Omar Khayyam and his interpreters in a single volume."
