The best known and best loved of Kahlil Gibran's many writings, The Prophet was first published in 1923 and has been translated and read around the world. Gibran lets his protagonist, identified simply as the Prophet, deliver homilies on a variety of topics central to daily life—love, marriage and children, work and play, possessions, beauty, truth, joy and sorrow and death—providing the reader with a guide to living a more spiritual life. Presented in a slipcase, this sumptuous cloth edition features a purple satin cover and gold inlaid print, and the book boasts decorative bordered pages and dozens of color illustrations from classic Persian sources.
