Of Omar Khay√Ęm, the Astronomer-Poet of Persia (Classic Reprint)

€ 14.89

Excerpt from Sublime Pessimism: Of Omar Khayâm, the Astronomer-Poet of Persia A few years ago, when I happened to be in England, I came across one or two admirers of Omar Khayam; and I was very much struck with the deep impression that the Persian Poet in his English garb, that is, such as Fitzgerald had clothed him in, had made on their minds. In one of their clubs they invited me to give an informal talk on this Eastern poet, and I accepted the invitation. I spoke only very briey giving them some of my early impressions of the poetry of Omar. Very soon I came to find out - and that to my intense surprise - that Omar had quite a large circle of warm admirers in that cold and distant land. From England I went to America; and there also I realized that Omar was deeply loved and greatly che rished among the literary classes of the United States. I had occasion to speak on Omar Khayam before several of the leading literary clubs in the United States.
