Poet, artist and mystic Kahlil Gibran was born in 1883 to a poor Christian family in Lebanon and emigrated to the United States as an adolescent. His masterpiece, "The Prophet", a book of poetic essays written in his youth, has sold over eight million copies in more than twenty languages since its first publication in 1923. But all Gibran's works - essays, stories, parables, prose poems - are imbued with equally powerful simplicity and wisdom, whether meditating upon love, marriage, friendship, work, pleasure, time or grief. Perhaps no other twentieth-century writer has touched the hearts and minds of so remarkably varied and widespread a readership. Included in this volume are "The Madman", "The Forerunner", "The Prophet", "Sand and Foam", "Jesus the Son of Man", "Earth Gods", "The Wanderer", "The Garden of the Prophet", "Prose Poems", "Spirits Rebellious", "Nymphs of the Valley" and "A Tear and a Smile".

About the Author:

Khalil Gibran (also known as Kahlil Gibran; born Gibran Khalil Gibran) was born January 6, 1883 and died April 10, 1931. And was an artist, poet and writer. He was born in Lebanon and spent much of his productive life in the United States. To many he is a genius whose philosophical and prophetic style convey important messages about life and humanity in a simple, yet beautifully eloquent manner, that are as fresh and meaningful in today's world as when they were first written.

Review:

"[Kahlil Gibran] speaks about fundamental things--those which are, or should be, a part of every human life--love, giving, food and drink, work, sorrow and joy, children, clothes and housing, buying and selling, crime and punishment, freedom, reason and passion, self-knowledge, teaching, friendship, talking, good and evil, prayer, pleasure, beauty, religion and death . . . Like most wisdom, most of what he has to tell is ancient, the possession of all men who have thought much and hard about fundamental things . . . But on it all there is also the imprint of a rich and unusual personality . . . Gibran offers no short-cuts to happiness, no easily mastered formulae for successful living. Essentially, he bids you look closely into your own heart and mind." --NEW YORK TIMES
