Kahlil gibran a self portrait
A Self Portrait by Kahlil GibranLetters mingle souls, said the poet John Donne, & no better proof of this statement could be found than this collection of the letters of Kahlil Gibran. In his letters the author of The Prophet,The Broken Wings, The Voice of the Master & other 20th-century classics bared his soul completely, & their strange magic inspired in his correspondents a like self-revelation. The letters in this book span 1904 to 1930, & truly constitute a self-portrait of the poet in the time of his greatest productivity. These are Gibrans Boston & New York years, with an interlude in Paris, during which he studied under the sculptor Auguste Rodin. There are touching letters here to his sister Miriana & other members of his family; there are thoughtful letters to such influential men as Ameen Guraieb, rhe editor who introduced the Arabic-American public; & above all, there are impassioned letters to May Ziadeh, the Lebanese writer with whom Gibran had formed an extraordinary literary & love relationship entirely through correspondence.

This was a fascinating biography of one of my favorite writers, as well as a great presentation of an immigrant in America at the turn of the 19th century. The authors had access to manuscripts, letters, and drawings, and they have written an account based mainly on the diaries and correspondence of Mary Haskell, Gibran's friend and companion for many years. Gibran spent his life caught between his Arabic background and the American life he wanted to have, without losing himself in the process. Well worth the size.
