The Storm brings together fourteen short stories and prose poems from Gibran’s 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 Walbridge’s clear, sensitive, and fluent translation provides us with an inspired and faithful approach to one of the twentieth century’s most beloved authors.
ABOUT THE TRANSLATOR
Gibran’s skill as a storyteller and ability to unveil powerful truths in a sparsity of words makes this collection a treasure. Hauntingly illustrated with Gibran’s own luminous drawings. ~ NAPRA Review
