Description

This classic work showcases the early brilliance and philosophical foundation of Kahlil Gibran, one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century  Kahlil Gibran, author of The Prophet and one of the twentieth century's most revolutionary, inspiring writers, effortlessly blends his unique perspective on Eastern and Western philosophy in this early collection of work, written when he was just twenty years old. From delicate turns of phrase to strong assertions of equality, delightful rejoicings to frightening prophecies, Gibran's poetry and prose reveal his eternal hunger for love and beauty.   This expanded edition includes key works of social justice such as "The Bride's Bed" and firmly establishes Gibran's role as champion of human rights and individual liberty.

      • bioText:

        Khalil Gibran (1883–1931) was an essayist, novelist, and mystic poet. He wrote The Prophet, a collection of philosophical essays that went on to become one of the bestselling books of the twentieth century. Though he was born in Lebanon, he moved to Boston's South End as a child and studied art with Auguste Rodin in Paris for two years before launching his literary career. Much of Gibran's work contains themes of religion and Christianity as well as spiritual love.
