The Broken Wings is a poetic novel written by Kahlil Gibran and first published in Arabic in 1912. It is a tale of tragic love, set in turn-of-the-century Beirut. Evocative, beautifully written and full of stunning imagery, it is also a compelling commentary on the plight of women and many other social issues of the time. About the author: Kahlil Gibran (1887-1931) was a Lebanese-American artist, poet, and writer. He is the third best-selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu. He is chiefly known in the English speaking world for his 1923 book The Prophet, a series of philosophical essays written in English prose. An early example of 'inspirational fiction', the book sold well and became extremely popular in the 1960s. This English Rose book is a high quality, well formatted edition. English Rose love books and think that every one is special, so our editions will always be distinctive, professional and unique. Visit English Rose at and view our other titles and new releases.
