"Christopher Decker has come forward with a splendid critical edition of the poem, containing FitzGerald's introductory essay and notes to each version. It prints all four printed versions along with manuscript variants and, most usefully indeed, appends a comparative version in which each quatrain appears in a column with its variants keyed to their order of placement in the four editions as well as revised copy- and proof-texts for that of 1872.--John Hollander "Yale Review "
