Meghdadi, Bahram

A comparative analysis of Edward Fitzgerald's and Robert Graves's translation of 'The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam'. Bahram Meghdadi. Columbia University, 1969.


Robert Graves's publication of his own translation of Omar Khayyam's Rubaiyat in November, 1967 triggered this study. Graves claims that Edward FitzGerald used spurious sources for his translation and that FitzGerald misinterpreted Khayyam's basic philosophy.
