Product Description
Primary Document Excerpt for AP World History Document Analysis

This is a formatted document for the purpose of easy access, printing and distribution to students for the purpose of analyzing documents in AP World History Courses. If you teach AP World History (W.H.A.P.), you are familiar with the use of primary documents for the purpose of document analysis. Many times these documents are in a document source book and have to be copied for distribution to students; or there are electronic versions where students must read the document on-line and submit answers. The service that I have provided for you is to simply format the document with the analysis questions into an easy-to access and printable document that can be readily printed for easy distribution to students. Document analysis questions are also included so that documents can be read and analyzed individually, in a pair-share situation or use in a Group setting.

About the Document

Nearly all societies who develop writing develop forms of poetry, and even those with no writing compose poetry-like epic tales and stories transmitted by word-of-mouth. The themes are often similar, if not identical: tales of heroic exploits, the activities of deities, or human issues of love or loss. In some ways, The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám includes all of these themes and others.

Omar Khayyam, who was born in Persia around 1050 C.E., was a well-educated man known for his mathematical skill. He was also a noted astronomer, but he is best known in the West for his poetry. Not only is his Rubáiyát considered one of the masterpieces of world literature, it also gives us a glimpse into Persian life in this period. It includes oft-quoted quatrains about love.
