Synopsis

Presented in an attractive gift book format and commemorating the seventy-fifth anniversary of the passing of Kahlil Gibran, "The Essential Gibran" is a volume of selected passages representative of Gibran's style and thought. Offering a wide variety of theme, occasion, mood, and form, his essential style is captured in reflective poetic prose, dramatic sketches, allegories and parables, national and international addresses, and romantic writings of all kinds. Evident throughout is his abiding respect for universal human rights, the equality of men and women, and religious tolerance. This is a wonderful insight into a universal figure whose profound humanity and concern for the highest standards of integrity in both a moral and literary sense transcends the boundaries between cultures, which have too often found themselves in opposition to each other.
