First Published In: 1993.

This work contains 14 short stories and poems, that express many of Gibran's key themes: the injustice meted out to the poor and the weak; the beauties of nature needlessly destroyed by man; and the innocent purity of young love, so often crushed underfoot by society.


By: Book Description

The Storm brings together fourteen short stories and prose poems from Gibrans Arabic writings that exhibit several characteristic Gibran themes: the injustice perpetrated by society against the poor, the weak, and the sincere; nature and its destruction by man; and the purity and innocence of young love. John Walbridges clear, sensitive, and fluent translation provides us with an inspired and faithful approach to one of the twentieth centurys most beloved authors.

I read this book about a year ago, and was struck by the beautiful langiage, and imagery. Gibran writes what the soul sees. I have an extensive collection of his work, and I am very pleased to have this one now in my collection. I would recomend it for anyone interested in how beautifully words can be arranged and written down.
