AUSTIN’S GOLDEN RUBAIYAT: THE TEXT
By Austin P. Torney
Copyright 2015 Austin P. Torney
This edition contains the crème de la crème of my Omaresque style quatrains. Inspired by Omar, I have endeavored to capture his spirit for more modern times, although I have surely been influenced by Edward FitzGerald’s translated gems.
There is a companion prose version, ‘The Triumph of Life, Love, and Being’, in which a loving couple take a long, picaresque journey through the countryside to explore the joys and follies of the human condition, living out the quatrains.
