New issue of Omariana

September 6, 2012

The recent issue of Omariana (vol. 11 2012, # 2) features an article by Bob Forrest on the Omarian meditations of C.F. Volney, who in his book “Ruins: or Meditation on the Revolutions of Empires” (1791) 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.
