New edition of Omariana newsletter now available

December 1, 2016

The Fall 2016 edition of the excellent Omariana newsletter, produced by Jos Coumans of the Netherlands Omar Khayyam Society, is now available.  This is the second issue in the new series that began earlier this year.  You can subscribe to receive this newsletter by e-mail, via the website where you can also find digital versions of the latest and earlier editions of Omariana.

The current edition of the newsletter is full of interesting information about new editions and translations of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, new books and articles on related topics, new musical versions and relevant web sites, and other Rubaiyat matters.  This time, among the latter, there are splendid images of a verse of the Rubaiyat ‘writ large’ on the side of a building in Leiden in the Netherlands.  The first line is shown in our reproduction below.  Congratulations to all who managed to create this wonderful publicity for the poem and its thinking.  Perhaps cities in other countries could follow Leiden’s example?
