    " This is nice and well put together collection of poems from Gibran. The poems in the book were taken from his younger days, before he began to write his work in English. The collection of poems are translated. None-the-less, it's a great book for poetry lovers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 9/23/2011

    " Not as good as The Prophet obviously. Random collection of writings that change back and forth from prose-like to more direct. A few good parts, but most of it kept me wishing for more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hans | 6/9/2011

    " Essentially modern psalms put to prose. Full of interesting anecdotes about life. Beautifully written. "

    " Beautifuly written and thought provoking insight on life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie | 5/17/2011

    " I really liked it; a lot of depth in a small book. But what's up with the antequated language? Maybe some people find that inspiring because it's reminiscent of the King James Bible, but I just find it a bit pretention. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adrienne | 5/15/2011

    " This is a book that I was given by a friend who always carried a spare copy with her to give to others. It's a profound look at the basic philosophies of life that you re-read again and again. It's not long, but will have to coming back to read it on a yearly basis. "

    " Just re-read this book, actually. Although I'm not really into poetry, and especially the abstract kind, I really enjoy a lot of the thoughts and insight shared in some of the subjects touched upon in The Prophet. Something I think I will read again from time to time.. "

About the Author
Author Kahlil Gibran

Kahlil Gibran (1883–1931), a Lebanese artist, mystical poet, and writer, is one of his home country’s literary heroes. Born in Bsharri, a town in a mountainous area of northern Lebanon, he received no formal education until his family immigrated to Boston’s South End in 1895. Once there, he studied art and began his literary career. His works are deeply spiritual and lyrical, marked by a distinctive formal style. He is known in the English-speaking world primarily for The Prophet, a book of twenty-six poetic essays published in 1923 which achieved cult status. Gibran remains one of today’s bestselling poets.
