Omar Khayym'S Collection Of Verses Follows His Journey Through A Day. At First What Seems Like An Ode To Wine And Women, The Poem Turns Towards The World And Philosophy Kicks In. In Its Four Line Stanzas Which Rhythmically Rhyme Thanks To Fitzgerald'S Translation, The Rubaiyat Examines Man'S Partiality For The Finer Life And Through It He Shows That There Is Only One Message. Seize The Hour For There Is Only Now. Tomorrow Is Too Late. In Words Immortal Omar Khayym Returns To Us And Sings Of The Life Eternal, Of Roses, Of Wine Seductive, Of Drunken Friends And The Women Who Entice Us With Their Wiles. Readers Lose Themselves To Omar Khayym'S Philosophy Which Finds Sufi Philosophies In The Bottle And Life In The Drunken Stupor Beyond.
