Correspondence with readers of 'The Rubaiyyat of Omar Khayaam'

Scope and Content

This series consists of correspondence received from members of the public and press following the publication of Graves's and Omar Ali-Shah's version of 'The Rubaiyyat of Omar Khayaam'. There are also two draft or unsent letters from Graves.


The series remains in its original order, arranged by correspondent and chronologically therein; three letters to the editor of 'Commentary', originally placed apparently at random in the sequence, have now been placed at the end of the correspondence received.
