BEIT EL HEKMA- Michael Nueima
In commemoration of the thirtieth anniversary of Mikha’il Na’ima’s Passing:
A Poetry Salon
Mikha’il Na’ima (1889-1988 Lebanon) was a poet, novelist, and philosopher. He is also called a spiritual writer because of his remarkable writings about death. He had a unique humanitarian approach. Na’ima is considered as one of the most influential figures in the modern Arabic literature. He wrote 99 books including drama, essays, poetry, criticism, short stories, and biographies. Among his best known books is the “Book of Mirdad“, a mystical text first published in Lebanon in 1948. Besides, he co-founded, along with Khalil Gibran and others, the New York literary society known as the Pen League.
“In this poetry salon, we chose poems that tackle various topics such as earth, language, silence, imagination, life, ego, death, and justice. We will end by highlighting the importance of spiritual love in our life,” said Hamada Shousha, the event Director.

Gibran Khalil Gibran
As a young man, Gibran Khalil Gibran (1883 Lebanon–1931 New York) emigrated with his family to the United States, where he studied art and began his literary career, writing in both English and Arabic. In the Arab world, Gibran is regarded as a literary and political rebel. His romantic style was at the heart of a renaissance in modern Arabic literature, especially prose poetry, breaking away from the classical school. In Lebanon, he is still celebrated as a literary hero.
Chiefly known was his 1923 book “The Prophet”, an early example of inspirational fiction including a series of philosophical essays written in poetic English prose.
