In Search of Omar Khayyam (Rle Iran B)

Khayyam has been the subject of speculation on the part of literary critics ever since Edward Fitzgerald published his own version of the Rubaiyat in 1859. This edition represented the first opportunity to study in English the work of Khayyam by a Persian scholar.
There is no conclusive evidence to prove which of the many quatrains attributed to Khayyam are authentic. Ali

عنوان: دمی با خیام؛ نوشته: علی دشتی؛ انتشارات امیرکبیر، 1340، در 379 ص
نسخه سال 1364 چاپ اساطیر را خوانده ام
هر یکچندی یکی برآید که منم
با نعمت و با سیم و زر آید که منم
چون کارک او نظام گیرد چندی
ناگه اجل از کمین درآید که منم

مسئلۀ اصلی کتاب شناسایی رباعی های اصلی خیام است، و با ارائۀ شاهد از متون کهن، خوانش نزدیک متن، بررسی محتوایی رباعی ها، اشاره به زندگی و حوزه های علاقۀ خیام و بالاخره تفسیر حدس و گمان تلاش میکنه نشون بده کدام رباعی ها نوشتۀ خیام هستن و کدام ها نیستن. که خب انصاف رو رعایت میکنه در این مسیر و استدلال ها و ادعاهاش قابل قبول و قانع کننده هستن.
در خلال محقق کردن هدف بالا، اشاراتی به زندگی خیام و زمانۀ او داریم؛ در مورد خلقیات و ویژگی های شخصیتی او می خوانیم؛ دربارۀ فلسفۀ مطرح شده در رباعی هاش می خونیم

نوع انسان بر سایر جانداران زمین مزیتی روشن و خیره کننده دارد. می اندیشد، از سیر افلاک و کواکب سر در آورده، سال و ماه و فصول اربعه را معین کرده است، به راز آفرینش فکر کرده و فلسفه آورده است، با علوم طبیعی و ریاضی بسی مشکلات را حل کرده، با شعر و موسیقی و معماری و صدها هنرِ دیگر برترین خود را مسجل ساخته؛ اما با همه ی این احوال محکوم به فناست و از این حیث با کوچکترین و پست ترین جانداران تفاوتی ندارد.
آمدن شدن تو اندرین عالم چیست؟
آمد مگسی پدید و ناپیدا شد!

I was not overly impressed with this book to be honest. The book was a study of the verification of some of the claims that people in the past have made in having translated the 4 line quatrains of Omar Khayyam. I must admit that I have begun to doubt whether one of my all time Omar Khayyam quatrains was actually his based on this book. Here it is:
“Here with a Loaf of Bread beneath the Bough,
A Flask of Wine, a Book of Verse - and Thou
Beside me singing in the Wilderness -
And Wilderness is
