Description

"The Prophet" is a book of 26 poetic essays written in English by the Lebanese artist, philosopher and writer Khalil Gibran. It was originally published in 1923 and it is Gibran's best known work. "The Prophet" has been translated into every major language. The prophet Al-Mustafa who has lived in the foreign city of Orphalese for 12 years is about to board a ship which will carry him home. He is stopped by a group of people, with whom he discusses many issues of life and the human condition. The book is divided into chapters dealing with love, marriage, children, giving, eating and drinking, work, joy and sorrow, houses, clothes, buying and selling, crime and punishment, laws, freedom, reason and passion, pain, self-knowledge, teaching, and more. "The Prophet" is perhaps the most beautiful series of poetically wise musings on love, family, work, death, and all the other things that matter most, which was ever written. Its author Kahlil Gibran is the third best-selling poet of all time, behind only Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu. This book has sold tens of millions of copies and is continuously on all the international bestseller lists. It has been translated into over 50 different languages and has never been out of print.
