The Broken Wings by Kahlil Gibran
Narrated by Denis Daly
This 1918 novella presents the life history of an ideal inamorata, universally admired and doomed to an untimely passing. The author uses the story to explore in-depth the concept of beauty, both personal and spiritual.
In the author's words: "Real beauty lies in the spiritual accord that is called love which can exist between a man and a woman."
