Rubáiyát are poems of Persian origin that use a four-line stanza. Some of the better known rubáiyát were penned by authors such as Omar Khayyám: and were widely celebrated for their philosophic reflections upon Life’s ultimate meaning.
Omar Khayyám’s writings are known to us via Edward Fitzgerald‘s excellent translations. Fitzgerald rewrote Khayyám’s original rubáiyát in English using the expressive rhymed quatrain: which is also the verse scheme adopted for all poems here at the Rubáiyát of Life.
