Synopsis

Known and loved throughout the world as the author of The Prophet, the twentieth century's bestselling book after the Bible, the great Lebanese-American poet and philosopher Kahlil Gibran is widely regarded as one of history's most gifted writers. With an immediate ability to connect with his audience, his profound words have transcended barriers of culture and creed to touch the hearts of millions. Compiled by the world's foremost authority on Gibran, Professor Suheil Bushrui, The Essential Gibran draws on a wide-ranging collection of prose poems, dramatic sketches, parables, letters, essays, and national and international addresses to capture the essence of Gibran's style and thought. With an excellent introduction to the man and his work, this impressive edition will add a fresh dimension to our understanding of one of the greatest wordsmiths of the last century.
