The Syrian World Volume 03, Issue 11


Volume 3 Issue 11 of The Syrian World published May 1929. The issue begins with an article by George A. Ferris which discusses future of Syrians in America and the possibility of losing Syrian culture while assimilating into American society. The next piece is a travel journal by Ameen Rihani which details his trip to Arabia and his encounter with King Hussein of Jordan, a supposed direct descendant of Muhammed. It is followed by a poem by Kahlil Gibran titled "Out of My Deeper Heart," a discussion of faith. Next is a poem by Dr. Najib A. Katibah titled "The Sudanese Soldier," a piece reminiscent of the time that the writer himself served with the British Armed forces in the conquest of Sudan. Philip K. Hitti has a chapter excerpt from Usama. Dr. Salim Y. Alkazin is featured next with a poem called "In the Rose Season," which discusses the time of year where roses bloom, and which the poet states is also "love's season." Another poem, translated from Arabic by Labeebee A. J. Hanna, follows, titled "Man is Dead." A collection of sonnets by Thomas Asa dedicated to Gibran K. Gibran primarily follow the theme of friendship. The final article presented is written by Dr. George Knaysi, an instructor of bacteriology at Cornell University. The article is titled "Man is Potentially Immortal," and it discusses the uncertainty and curiosity that accompanies the unknown territory of life and death in a scientific sense. The issue concludes with the Reader's Forum, excerpts from the Arab press, and more on the political developments in Syria.
