Kahlil Gibran published The Prophet in 1923 and saw immediate success, but its real popularity came after his death. It remains popular today, providing insight and spiritual significance to ordinary human experiences. Gibran poetically addresses topics such as Love and Marriage as well as more mundane ones like Work and Talking. Gibran's spiritual fiction does not shy away from deeper aspects of human life, either. Almustafa, the prophet, speaks also about Good and Evil, Joy and Sorrow, and even Death. This compact soft cover edition contains the original illustrations, made by Gibran himself.
