First published in the 1920s, this book attempts to provide the reader with a guide to living.

Gibran lets his protagonist, called simply 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.

About the Author

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. His other books include The Madman, The Forerunner, The Wanderer and The Broken Wings. Kahlil Gibran died in 1931.

    Comments about The Prophet:

    I read The Prophet years ago, but wish I had a copy to give for those who needed to learn the wisdom of this text.

    I have three copies from Booktopia. I carry one in my car after I experienced my assistance to a woman with child.
    The page on CHILDREN would have been invaluable.

    I intend to purchase more books by Kahill

    Gibran.

    Comment on this review

    "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
