|Pages/Publication Date:||224 / 2019|
One of the 20th century's most inspirational author-artists, Lebanese poet Kahlil Gibran drew upon his personal faith to write his enduring work The Prophet. It contains 28 succinct philosophical musings by the wise Almustafa, awaiting the arrival of the ship that will return him to his homeland. As he bids farewell to the people of Orphalese, he shares his thoughts on such topics as love, marriage, children, work, freedom, pain, good and evil, beauty, religion, and death. With a new introduction by Angelo John Lewis, this Knickerbocker Classics edition also includes The Madman (1918) and The Forerunner (1920), as well as Gibran's original drawings.
