The sweet songstress of Saskatchewan

...wants to discuss literature, wearing the mantle, no doubt, of her eminent predecessor.

Being a novice at literary criticism, though, she uses Google, and discovers no hits for "Muslim literary giants." Case closed. Buzz off, Khayyam. Scram, Hafiz. Begone, al-Rumi.

As a bonus, one of her benighted commenters indulges in some hilariously inept literary analysis of Khayyam's Rubaiyat. Hint: read a little about Sufism, if you can tear yourself away from your colouring book.

Good grief, what a collection of yokels.
