Edward Fitzgerald - LIFE STORIES
 
 
3/31/1809     Edward Fitzgerald's Omar Khayyam
On this day in 1809 Edward Fitzgerald was born, and on this day in 1859 his "free translation" of The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam was published. This became one of the most popular works of the 19th century and one of the best-selling books of poetry ever; some say that its impact on Victorian England was equal to that of The Origin of Species, also published in 1859.
