Description

First published posthumously in 1933, this is the book which Gibran was working on in the years leading up to his untimely death. The book uses the same narrative framework as was used in THE PROPHET - that is the nine disciples asking questions - but instead of dealing with man's relationship with man, it centres on man's relationship with nature. THE GARDEN OF THE PROPHET opens with Almustafa who has returned home to the place of his birth. Overwhelmed by 'the sadness of memory' he retiresto the family burial ground, but after a period of solitude he begins once more to offer inspirational answers in response to the entreaties of his companions.
