Author: Kahlil Gibran
Kahlil Gibran's poetic language allows epigrammatic detachment from familiar ground in order to further delve into the ambiguities of life. Gibran's creation of the Prophet was first published in 1923 and was translated into over 20 languages. The sensitivity Gibran masters with his words swiftly uplifts us from all that we are aware of to new ground where lights shines through. This is truly one of the greatest creations of this century.
