Omariana Eccentrica - part 1 Bob Forrest comments on a number of rather eccentric books relating to the Rubáiyát

Omariana Eccentrica - part 2 One of the most peculiar books in the Omarian canon is Louis C. Alexander’s book The Testament of Omar Khayyam

Omariana Eccentrica - part 3 Another remarkable specimen of Rubaiyat literature is Omar Khayyam in his Rubaiyat by dr. Otoman Zar-Adusht Ha’nish

Omar Khayyam: food for atheists Johan ter Haar wonders whether Christopher Hitchens was right when he pulled Khayyam into the atheists' camp

Omar and the Pre-Raphaelites Despite their enthusiasm, surprisingly little of the work of the Pre-Raphaelites was directly inspired by Omar.

The Omarian meditations of C.F. Volney In his book "Ruins: or Meditation on the Revolutions of Empires" (1791) C.F. Volney contemplates on the derelict state of the once great city of Palmyra. His thoughts are strikingly echoed in FitzGerald's verse 16, with its transient procession of "Sultan after Sultan with his Pomp", and his verse17, with its ruins inhabited by the Lion and the Lizard.
