Khayyam

Omar Khayyam is perhaps the best known and most appreciated Persian poet in the West. He was born in 1048 in Neyshabur in Khorasan. Philosophy, of jurisprudence, history, mathematics, medicine, and astronomy were among the subjects mastered by this brilliant man. He was responsible for devising the Jalali calendar and for building an observatory in Isfahan during the reign of Malek Shah Saljuq. Until the end of the 19th century, Khayyam’s poetry was largely neglected in Iran mainly because the orthodox censured him for his unorthodoxy. However, when Fitzgerald’s translation made him suddenly popular in the west, the Iranians began to reassess Khayyam’s merits as the greatest poet of rubai. Unfortunately, few of Khayyam's prose writings have survived; these include a few brief tracts on metaphysics and a treatise on Euclid.
