A Study on Gibran Khalil Gibran's Prose Style

Azam Jahangiri

Abstract


Abstract

      The present paper intends to study Gibran Khalil Gibran's literary style in writing prose. Style in literature is the literary element that describes the ways that the author uses words –the author's word choice, sentence structure, figurative language and sentence arrangement all work together to establish mood, images, and meaning in the text. Style describes how the author describes events, objects, and ideas. But, in addition to the personal attitude, sometimes the writer's style is not as personal as the definition of style suggests. It means that in many cases the style of an author is influenced by the general and contemporary attitudes of the era. This article discusses not only some the crucial stylistic features of Gibran's prose but also the surrounding situations, the dominant literary trends, the cultural and religious interactions and other related factors that affect on Gibran's prose style.
