Classical Persian poetry: Umar Khayyam

Following the first 3 lessons dedicated to Classical Persian poetry, we’re pleased to invite you for a continuation of the series designed by Mehdi! The three new main figures: Hafez, Khayyam, Attar of Neyshabur!

We will introduce you to their masterpieces, talk about historical context, and of course, read the poems (in the original language) and discuss an interpretation of them.

Tonight is on the program: Umar Khayyam

Umar Khayyam was a Persian polymath, scientist, philosopher, and poet of the 11th century CE. Traditionally, Umar Khayyam’s significance in the annals of Islamic intellectual tradition is due to, his Rubā‘iyyāt (quatrains) and his scientific works, especially those in the field of mathematics.

You can follow a single lesson or a full mini-course of 3 sessions!
