Whitman's poetry has a great impact on world literatures. A Czechoslovakian critic once pointed out that "the new poetic realm opened up by Whitman means similarly to the poetry in Asia, America and Europe ... " (Li Yeguang, 1988, p.381.) In fact, Whitman influenced greatly on modern Arabic poetry in general and its prose poetry in particular. His influence on Arabic prose poetry came from some immigrant poets and writers who lived in America. The most famous and important Arabic immigrant poet is Gibran Khalil Gibran (1883-1931). We can find in Gibran and Whitman's works that they shared strong similarity in their poetics and thoughts.
