Description
Kahlil Gibran's masterpiece, The Prophet, is one of the most beloved classics of our time. Published in 1923, it has been translated into more than twenty languages, and the American editions alone have sold more than nine million copies. The Prophet is a collection of poetic essays that are philosophical, spiritual, and, above all, inspirational. Gibran's musings are divided into twenty-eight chapters covering such sprawling topics as love, marriage, children, giving, eating and drinking, work, joy and sorrow, housing, clothes, buying and selling, crime and punishment, laws, freedom, reason and passion, pain, self-knowledge, teaching, friendship, talking, time, good and evil, prayer, pleasure, beauty, religion, and death. Each essay reveals deep insights into the impulses of the human heart and mind. The Chicago Post said of The Prophet : "Cadenced and vibrant with feeling, the words of Kahlil Gibran bring to one's ears the majestic rhythm of Ecclesiastes . . . If there is a man or woman who can read this book without a quiet acceptance of a great man's philosophy and a singing in the heart as of music born within, that man or woman is indeed dead to life and truth." With twelve full-page drawings by Gibran, this beautiful work makes an incredible gift for anyone seeking enlightenment and inspiration.

display_description Rich in timeless wisdom and beautiful poetic language, this spiritual classic is "exquisite . . . simply a masterpiece" (The Independent, London). As the wise man Almustafa prepares to leave the island where he has lived in exile from his home for twelve years, the community gathers around him, beseeching him to share his wisdom before he departs. Within this framework, the beloved prophet offers meditations on love, marriage, children, giving, eating and drinking, work, joy and sorrow, houses, clothes, buying and selling, crime and punishment, laws, freedom, reason and passion, pain, self-knowledge, teaching, friendship, talking, time, good and evil, prayer, pleasure, beauty, religion, and death. Written by a Lebanese-American poet, The Prophet was an immediate success upon its publication in 1923. Translated into more than one hundred languages and selling millions of copies, the book's popularity has never waned. In the 1960s, it was freshly discovered and venerated by the counterculture, and in 2014, it was adapted into an animated film. The universal truths embedded in these twenty-six prose poems continue to resonate for spiritual seekers. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
