A Comparative Study of Omar Khayyams Poetry and the Poetry of Percy Bysshe Shelley

Abdulkadhim Ajaj Hameed Al-bujasim

Omar Khayyam is considered as an important Persian poet, the writer of Rubaiyat which was also translated by Edward FitzGerald. On the other hand, Percy Bysshe Shelley, the British Romantic poet is one of the most highly regarded and influential poets of the 19th century. The poetry of these two poets aims to change the human and by extension, the world. Their exclusive poems have enriched international literature with their aesthetic features arousing immense imagination and beauty. In this study, I attempted to provide an overview of their poems presenting nature as a source of inspiration, imagination, sublimity and pleasure. Shelley and Khayyam set up a unique bond with nature. They felt closely connected to Mother Nature embellishing their poetry with themes of nature, imagination and love as the main pillars of poetic motivation. Additionally, their poetry is replete with profound awareness of their environment and philosophical tendencies. Beautiful nature in both of their homelands, Iran and England, arises aesthetic feelings leading them to compose their masterpieces. Khayyam and Shelley are not simply poets, rather messengers of genuine delight, meaningful life as well as truth, so to speak.
