New issue of Omariana

December 22, 2017

Just in time for Christmas, we have received a bumper new issue of the newsletter Omariana.  This invaluable product is produced by Jos Coumans of the Netherlands Omar Khayyam Society, and it contains of cornucopia of information on new material relating to the Rubaiyat, Omar Khayyam, Edward FitzGerald and related topics.  There are sections on recently produced editions of the Rubaiyat, on books and articles on relevant topics, and on new audio versions, web sites and other miscellaneous matter.  One interesting item in the new edition points us to a website and YouTube video about the performance of Khayyam’s verses in Arabic by the famous singer Oum Kalthoum.  This is something well worth listening to.

The newsletter is available free from Jos Coumans and you can subscribe to it via the following link omariana.nl.  Our thanks to Jos for continuing to share his extensive finds with others through the newsletter.
