WINE, WOMEN & THEFT?
Omar Khayyam Accused of Plagiarism

LOST AND FOUND

ROOMS FOR RENT

By CAL SAMRA
By Allah! -- Omar Khayyam,
Persian poet-advocate of wine,
women and song, has been accus-
ed of plagiarism.
The accusation comes from one
Mohammed Majadara, '53, a Le-
banese student who has made a
careful study of Omar's popular
"Rubaiyat," comparing it with the
"Luzumiyat" of Abu'l-Ala'l-Ma'-
arri, a practically unknown Arab
poet of the same century.
MAJADARA FOUND that the
verse of the 11th century libertine
resembles-in style and thought--
the work of Abu'l-Ala. The fact
that Abu'l-Ala preceded Omar by
half a century leads Majadara to
believe that the latter copied his
style and ideas.
Acording to Majadara, both
poets were fatalists and sceptics;
both ranted against religion;
both were unbelievers; and both
New Extension

wrote anthologies in quatrains
of identical metrical rhythms.
Majadara cited the following
quatrains as examples of their ap-
parent similarity:
On religion, Omar says:
"The mightly Mahmud, Allah-
breathing Lord,
That all the misbelieving and
black horde
Of Fears and Sorrows that in-
fest the Soul
Scatters before, him with his
whirlwind sword."

life is fleeting-"dust to dust and
clay to clay."
* * *
ON THE matter of morals, Omar
said: "the world being fleeting, I
practice naught but artifice." This,
according to Majadara, is an echo
of Abu'l-Ala's "Why do good, since
thou art to be forgiven for thy
sins?"
As for style and meaning, Maja-
dara recommends comparing these
two quatrains:
Omar: "And this reviving Her,
whose Tender Green
Fledges the River-Lip, on
which we lean-
Ah, lean upon, it lightly! for
who knows
From what one lovely Lip it
springs unseen."
Abu'l-Ala: "Tread lightly, for
the mighty that have been
Might now be breathing in the
dust unseen;
Lightly, the violets beneath
thy feet
Spring from the mole of some
Arabian queen."
However, there is one essential
difference between the two poets,
Majadara pointed out. "Whereas
Khayyam wants to make the most
of his time, Abu'l-Ala, who was
blind, cared little for wine and wo-
men. The latter's only satisfaction
was his quest for 'Truth,' but he
remained a skeptic all his life."
