The Broken Wings is a poetic novel written by Kahlil Gibran, author of the seminal inspirational work The Prophet.

The Broken Wings was first published in Arabic in 1912 (as Al-Ajniha Al-Mutakassirah). 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 (born Gubran Khalil Gubran bin Mikhāʹīl bin Saʹad, 3 January, 1887–10 April, 1931) was a Lebanese-American artist, poet, and writer. Born in the town of Bsharri in modern-day Lebanon (then part of the Ottoman Mount Lebanon mutasarrifate), as a young man he immigrated with his family to the United States where he studied art and began his literary career.

Gibran 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.

His other works include A Tear and A Smile (1914), The Madman (1918), The Forerunner (1920), Sand and Foam (1926) and Jesus, the Son of Man (1928).
