Title

The Syrian World Volume 04, Issue 09

Description

Volume 4 Issue 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. Salloum Mokarzel then recounts more of his travels, specifically to Tripoli and Latakia. Mokarzel describes the lands around him in detail. Gibran is yet again featured with a piece titled "On the Art of Writing." The principle poetic contribution in this issue is Thomas Asa's "Essay on Life." Follows is a short story by Labeebee A. J. Hanna that details an intimate and graphic aspect of Syrian-American home life. 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 political developments in Syria, specifically the formation of the Syrian Republic (1930-1958).
