As novelists, poets, playwrights, and essayists, and as founders of influential literary salons, individuals from Greater Syria were key contributors to the Arabic literary awakening. By turning the spotlight on to one of these writers – the pioneering writer, poet, and artist Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931) – Waïl Hassan will share with the Middlebury community his groundbreaking research on the reception and translation of Kahlil Gibran’s work in Brazil, one of the most important centers of Arabic literary production in the diaspora.
