    Description.The Prophet, an international besteller and translated into over fifty languages, is the best-known and best-loved of Kahil Gibran's many spiritual and religious writings. Inspired largely by the beauty and timelessness of nature, The Prophet, arrayed as twentysix prose poetry essays, speaks of love and marriage, joy and sorrow, reason and passion, beauty and death, and conveys the yearning for a Unity of Being that can only be achieved through love. These qualities made The Prophet the iconic book of the 1960s counter-culture, which embraced love and spirituality. Illustrated with his own enchanting and mystical drawings, The Prophet is a masterpiece, the most famous work of religious fiction of the Twentieth Century, and a wonderful companion for anybody embarking on their own spiritual journey.

    Author Information
    Poet, philosopher and artist, Kahlil Gibran was born in 1883 near Mount Lebanon, a region that has produced many prophets. His poetry has been translated into more than twenty languages. His drawings and paintings have been exhibited in the great capitals of the world and compared by Auguste Rodin to the work of William Blake. Kahlil Gibran died in 1931. His most famous work The Prophet, was published in 1923. By the time of his death, it was already firmly established as a classic book.
    Review quote
    "His power came from some great reservoir of spiritual life, else it could not have been so universal and so potent, but the majesty and beauty of the language with which he clothed it were all his own" -- Claude Bragdon
