by Khalil Gibran

The book Broken Wings is a poetic novel written by Kahlil Gibran and published in 1912. It is originally written in Arabic.

The novel is set at the beginning of the 20th century in the city of Beirut and introduces us to Selma Karamy, a young woman who is going to marry the nephew of a very prominent religious in the community.

The protagonist falls in love with this girl and is reciprocated, so they see each other in secret. On one occasion they are discovered and Selma is forbidden to leave the house, so the relationship becomes impossible.

Therefore, it is a tragic love story and highlights the social problems in those years in that area, highlighting the lack of women's rights and religious corruption. The ambition of a bishop who worships riches more than his God cuts short a true love story between the protagonists.

The book has enjoyed great world fame and has been taken both to the cinema and to a musical with the same name.
