*Preview of The Wine of Wisdom: The Life, Poetry, and Philosophy of Omar Khayyam*
This is a comprehensive introductory work on the life, works, philosophy,science and poetry of Omar Khayyam for the Western reader. In it I propose to reintroduce a remarkable man whose Western exotic image is not an accurate depiction of this mysterious and misunderstood philosopher, poet and scientist of the fifth/eleventh century. 1 This is my attempt to reconstruct, for the first time in the English language, the personality and thought of a figure who is unparalleled in the annals of Islamic intellectual thought, a stranger both in his homeland and in the West, a figure misunderstood by many people, loved by the free spirited and hated by many among the orthodox.
