Works Published in Arabic, 1905-1919
Spirits Rebellious. Short stories. New York, 1908. Three of these stories have been recently retranslated and published by John Walbridge in The Beloved and The Storm.
Newspaper essays and prose poems, 1905-1918. Many collected in Arabic as A Tear and a Smile (New York, 1914) and The Storms. Some of these were brought out in collections by Knopf from the late 1940s in poor translations that remain in print, especially in the Treasury volumes, hurting Gibran's literary reputation. Some of these pieces have recently been retranslated, both in the Walbridge books above, and as The Vision by Juan R. I. Cole, White Cloud Press, 1994. Hardback. * Paperback.
The Procession. [al-Mawakib]. New York, 1919. Long ode in classical Arabic. No good translations exist.
