I first found this book after seeing the movie "Omar Khayyam" in 1958 with Cornell Wilde as Omar. The movie was Hollywood Sand and Sandal, but there was enough reality to the story to trigger an intense continuing interest, to dig deeper and wider.

Professor Lamb gave an excellent historical overview about the life of a great poet/philosopher and also a brillant scientist, in my opinion, way ahead of his time, Omar Khayyam. If one is interested in the history and accomplishments of the former Persian Empire, this should be mandatory reading.

Even though this text is sometimes called fiction the events did occur. Harold Lamb was a great historical writer. I all ready had several of his works.
The book was received in the advertised condition making me a very happy customer.

All we remember about Omar Khayyam are his Persian

quatrane poetry which Lamb says he wrote as idle whim.

The books of Omar Khayyam were burned for saying that

the Earth wasn't the center of the universe.

He had already calculated a new more modern calendar.

I think that this failure of Islam in it's confrontation

with science and the progress of knowledge

shows a cultural pattern that hasn't been broken

since. That an astronomer and scientist who was respected by his King

was also a poet shows that he was a very great man.

This is a great book to read and certainly gives the reader an insight into the islamic world of that era. Omar el Khayyam, was one of the most renowned philosophers, mathematicians, poets of the 11th century Persia. He is a great credit to islam and his tolerance, seeking of knowledge and scientific mind would have been much appreciated today, in our world of religious fanaticism.
