Descrizione articolo

Riassunto:

Broken Wings tells the tale of a love doomed by the restrictions of a cruel society. The narrative highlights many of Gibran's concerns about the plight of Eastern women, wealth as an impediment to happiness, the greed and corruption of the clergy, and the overwhelming power of love.

From the Back Cover:

Kahlil Gibran deeply stirred readers the world over with "The Prophet", a modern classic of surpassing beauty and moral grandeur. In "The Broken Wings", the Lebanese poet-philosopher reveals the same artistry and wisdom that have enshrined his name in the hearts of millions as an "Immortal Prophet" and a "Dante of the Twentieth Century".

This is the exquisitely tender story of a love that beats desperately against the taboos of Oriental tradition. With great sensitivity and lyricism, Gibran describes his passion as a youth for Selma Karamy, the beautiful girl of Beirut who first unfolded to him the secrets of love. But it is a love that is doomed by a social convention which forces Selma into marriage with another man.

Portraying the exalted happiness and infinite sorrow of his relationship with Selma, Gibran at the same time probes the spiritual meaning of human existence with profound compassion. And he does so in a poetic prose that has magic and majesty.
