Excavates the rich vein of wisdom that characterises Arab literature, from Kahlil Gibran to the fabled delights of the Arabian Nights and the sacred verses of the Qur’an.
Characterized by its learning and spirituality, the culture of the Arab world has flourished at the crossroads of history, a rich source of perennial philosophy expressed through a diverse range of literature and poetry, both religious and secular.
The Wisdom of the Arabs draws on this vast spectrum of writings, from classical literature and the holy Qur’an to traditional folk sayings and the more recent wisdom of Kahlil Gibran. Thought-provoking and engaging, these passages offer advice on everything from the demands of daily life to the path of leadership and the search for the divine.
Offering a combination of practical and spiritual wisdom, as well as a deeper insight into the joys, sadnesses, and passions of the Arab peoples, this little treasury will provide nurture and nourishment for readers of all backgrounds.
Suheil Bushrui is a major authority on Arabic and Lebanese literature and an expert on the Lebanese poet, Kahlil Gibran. He is currently Professor and Director of the University of Maryland Kahlil Gibran Research and Studies Project, a fellow of the Temenos Academy (UK), and the author of numerous books and articles on Arabic, Aglo-Irish and English literatures.
