Omar Khayyam: biography Part 2


The authorship of Khayyam it is therefore often questioned, but proved that he was exactly himself had written over 300 works in verse form.

Currently, the name Khayyam is connected first of all with the quatrains, filled with deep meaning, which is called. These poems stand out markedly from the rest of the creative period, when he lived and wrote Omar.

The main difference between their writing is the author's "I" - the lyrical hero, who is a mere mortal, do not make anything heroic, but thinking about life and destiny. Khayyam to the literary work was written only about kings and heroes, not ordinary people.

Also the writer uses unusual language arts in poetry there are no extravagant expressions, traditional layered imagery of the East and allegorical. On the contrary, the author writes in simple and accessible language, design thoughts into meaningful sentences, not overloaded with syntax or incremental designs. Brevity and clarity are the main stylistic features of Khayyam that set his poems.

As a mathematician, Omar thinks logically and consistently in his works. He wrote on a completely different topic in his collection there are poems about love, about God, about fate, about the society and the place of an ordinary person in it.

The position of Khayyam in relation to the fundamental concepts of medieval Oriental society differed sharply from the generally accepted at that time. Being a famous scholar, he is not much versed in social trends and did not pay attention to what is happening around the changes and trends, which greatly crippled him in the last years of his life.

Theology occupied much of Khayyam he boldly expressed his unconventional ideas, praising the value of the common man and the importance of his desires and needs. However, the author perfectly separated God and faith from religious institutions. He believed that God is in each person's soul, he'll never leave him, and often wrote on the subject.

The position of Khayyam's attitude to religion was contrary to conventional wisdom, which caused a lot of controversy around his personality. Omar really carefully studied the Holy book, and therefore could interpret her tenets and disagree with some of them. This caused anger from the clergy, who believed the poet "bad" element.

Love was the second important concept in the work of the great writer. His statements about this strong feeling at times was Arctic, he rushed from the admiration of the sense and its object - a woman - to contrite that so often breaks the love life. About women, the author always spoke only in a positive way, according to him, the woman needs to love and to cherish, to make her happy, because for men beloved woman is the Supreme value.

Love for the author was a multifaceted sense he often wrote about it in the context of debates about friendship. Friendly relations Omar was also very important, he considered them nothing. The author was frequently urged not to betray friends, to appreciate them, not to exchange the ghostly recognition and not to betray their trust. After all, true friends are few. The writer confessed that it would prefer to be alone, "than with anyone".

Khayyam thinks logically and can see the injustice of the world, says the blindness of people to the main values in life and finds that many things explained theologically, are actually quite natural essence. The lyrical hero of Omar Khayyam speaks a man who questioned the faith, likes to pamper yourself, simple in needs and unlimited possibilities of your mind and reasoning. It is simple and close, loves wine and other clear joy of life.

Arguing about the meaning of life, Omar Khayyam came to the conclusion that each man was only a temporary guest of this beautiful world, and therefore it is important to enjoy every passing moment, to appreciate small pleasures and to treat life as a great gift. The wisdom of life, according to Khayyam, is to take all of the events and ability to find positive moments.
