Omar Khayyam was a Persian polymath who lived during the 11 th and 12 th centuries AD. During his time, Omar was a reputed scholar. He was especially known for his scholarly work in the fields of mathematics, astronomy, and philosophy. Today, however, he is best remembered as a great poet. This is especially so in the English-speaking world as a result of the translation of his Rubaiyat into English during the 19 th century.
