Translation is considered as one of the most effective means in making
every nation’s literature known to the world; although, regrettably, some formal and semantic aspects of the source texts dissolve by the ideological manipulation applied by the translator, even to such an extent that it can culminate in the distortion of the writer’s philosophy and ideology. The translator's manipulation results in obliteration of the true image of the writer presented to other nations. Hence, a manipulated image of the writer, based on the translator’s own ideology or the dominant ideology of his time is introduced into the readership. The present study, first, seeks to investigate the Edward Fitzgerald’s rewriting of Khayyam’s Rubaiyat from a theoretical viewpoint on his ideological manipulations; and then using concrete instances in the translation of Khayyam’s Rubaiyat, illustrates the translator’s exploitations from such well-known Persian poets as Hafiz, Sa’di, Jami and Attar.
