Description

This edition of this definitive work is now available as a highly designed paperback with flaps with a new introduction by Angelo John Lewis. Part of the Knickerbocker Classics series, a modern design makes this timeless book a perfect travel companion.

Published in 1923, Kahlil Gibran's most famous poetic work, The Prophet, includes twenty-eight succinct philosophical musings by Almustafa, as he awaits the arrival of the ship that will return him to his homeland. In the meantime, he shares his wisdom with the people of Orphalese, whom he has been living among for the past twelve years, on topics including love, marriage, children, work, freedom, pain, good and evil, beauty, religion, death, and more. One of the best-selling books of the twentieth century, The Prophet is as inspirational today as when it was originally published.

This edition alsoincludes Gibran'sThe Madman(1918) and The Forerunner(1920), along with his original drawings.

The author

Kahlil Gibran (January 6, 1883–April 10, 1931) A Lebanese-American poet, novelist, and essayist, Gibran's lyrical writings offer a blend of philosophy, religion, mysticism, and parable. Gibran was born in Lebanon and immigrated with his family to the United States in 1895. He was educated in Beirut and studied art in Paris. He later returned to the United States and set down roots in New York City, where he stayed for the rest of this life. He wrote in both English and Arabic and was heavily influenced by William Blake and the Bible. In addition to his classic, The Prophet (1923), he wrote The Madman (1918), Broken Wings (1922), The Processions (1919), and Jesus, The Son of Man (1928).
