First published in 1912, “The Broken Wings” is a poetic novel written by Khalil Gibran. Gibran Khalil Gibran (1883 – 1931) was a Lebanese-American poet, writer, and artist best known as the author of “The Prophet” (1923)—one of the best-selling books of all time. Gibran's work covers such themes as justice, religion, science, free will, love, happiness, the soul, the body, and death; and he is widely considered to have been one of the most important figures in Arabic poetry and literature during the first half of the twentieth century. Set in Beirut at the turn of the century, the story is one the tragic love between a young betrothed woman and our protagonist, who are forced to see each other in secret until their meetings are uncovered and their love made impossible. “The Broken Wings” addresses a variety contemporary problems in the Eastern Mediterranean, including women's rights and religious corrupt on. Other notable works by this author include: “Music” (1905), “Rebellious Spirits” (1908). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
