Summer 2020 edition of Omariana

August 10, 2020

The Summer 2020 edition of Omariana arrived in our inbox late last week. It is always a pleasure to receive new editions of this newsletter which is compiled and produced by Jos Coumans of the Netherlands Omar Khayyam Society. Omariana provides information about new editions of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, and books, articles and other new material relating to the Rubaiyat, Khayyam, FitzGerald and more. We are always amazed at how Jos manages to locate interesting and unusual developments in Rubaiyat related publications and activities, which greatly enrich our knowledge of this wide ranging world.

This issue of Omariana contains, among other things, notes on Turkish and Spanish translations and on several articles dealing with more philosophical aspects of the quatrains. There is also mention of a provocative and topical blog post by Juan Cole, author of a new English translation of the Rubaiyat. The post is entitled ‘Fundamentalist Pandemics. What Evangelicals Could Learn From The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam‘.

Congratulations to Jos Coumans on a further valuable contribution to our knowledge.
