Author's Name:  Gibran Kahlil

About Book
Among the most popular works of world literature, the writings of Kahlil Gibran are treasured by millions for their depth of insight, passion, and timeless spiritual vision. We are pleased to present a series of important new translations of the Arabic writings of Kahlil Gibran. Experts have noted that Gibran's meaning has, in the past, frequently been obscured by inaccurate renderings that fail to convey the freshness and vitality of his style. The new versions have been produced by recognised experts in the interpretation of texts in the Arabic language, who combine specialised knowledge of its literary and philosophical heritage with a fluid, accessible and contemporary English prose style. SPIRIT BRIDES is classic Gibran. In The Ash of Centuries and the Immortal Flame', we hear the tale of a love that unites two souls beyond time and social conventions. 'Marta al-Baniyah' depicts an orphan's descent into poverty and prostitution. The story of Gibran's vehicle for expressing his ethical convictions concerning exploitation of the poor and the victimisation of women through patriarchal oppression. The final story, 'Yuhanna the Madman' attacks the hypocrisy of religious institutions and beautifully contrasts the simplicity and depth of the teachings of Jesus to the financial and political interests of an ecclesiastical hierarchy. Yuhanna is an early liberation theologian speaking truth to power.
