Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam The Rubiyt of Omar Khayym (Persian: ) is the title that Edward FitzGerald gave to his translation of a selection of poems, originally written in Persian and numbering about a thousand, attributed to Omar Khayym (10481131), a Persian poet, mathematician and astronomer. A ruba'i is a two-line stanza with two parts (or hemistichs) per line, hence the word rubiyt (derived from the Arabic language root for "four"), meaning "quatrains".
