The “human mud” is one of the motifs of the poetry attributed to Khayyam. The imagery, concepts and philosophical thoughts about the human being's origin (creation, death, life after death) form the essence of this poetry. Are the Khayyam's quatrains about creation original and new? Or do they have a precedent in the ancient world poetry? Why does the Iranian literary criticism claim that this sort of poetry about the mystrey of human creation is Khayyamian? This paper explores the concept of the human mud in the ancient Egyptian, Accadian, Hebrew, Greek, Latin, Arab, and Persian potery.
Keywords: Khayyam, human mud, philosophia perennis, death
