Title

The Syrian World Vol. 04 no. 09

Description

Vol. 4 no. 09 of The Syrian World published May 1930. The issue opens with more of Ameen Rihani's experiences in Jeddah, and his near-haj to Mecca. The editor or Salloum Mokarzel then recounts more of his travels, specifically to Tripoli and Latakia in which Mokarzel describes the lands around him in detail. Gibran is yet again featured with a piece titled On the Art of Writing in which he describes the beautiful nature of writing. The principle poetic contribution in this issue is Thomas Asa's Essay on Life. Which is followed by a short story by Labeebee A. J. Hanna, that details an intimate and graphic description of a phase of Syrian-American home life. Finally Salloum Mokarzel's editorial is the last work in the issue, and it deals with the important question of whether the Syrians in America should choose to be called Syrians or Arabs? The issue closes with excerpts from the Arab press and more on the political developments in Syria, specifically the formation of the Syrian republic (1930-1958).
