The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayam

by Edward Fitzgerald

Nice and mystical.

Its a new experience altogether for people unfamiliar with oriental culture and suphism.For those of you who din't know, Omar Khayyam was one of the greatest philosophers, scientists and mathmatician that ever lived back in12th century.
He died in1122.He was a scholar in law and medicine as well; a thinktank of Pesia.

This book is highly philosophical and rendered in great lyrics.
Sample this,
Wake for the sun ,who scattered into flight
The stars before him from the field of night,
Drives night along with them from heaven & strikes
The Sultan's turret with a shaft of light.

I liked this one,
"Fill the cup that clears,
the day of past regrets and future fears."

Far From the Madding Crowd

by Thomas Hardy

Thomas Hardy is my favourite writer besides Charles Dickens.I have read so many of his books and this one is equally good.Its excellently written,wrapped in english romanticism & one of Hardy's most popular.
I also recommend readers read THe Mayor of Casterbridge &Tess of D'Urbervilles.

Masterful Britsh literature, it goes without saying.I am not surprised R.L.Stevenson said"I would give my hand to write like Hardy."
