Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Poet, philosopher, and artist, Kahlil Gibran (1883–1931) was born in Lebanon and moved to Boston when he was twelve. Following a period of study in Paris, Gibran moved to New York, and it was here that he was to compose The Prophet. He died in New York in 1931, at the age of 48.

Professor Suheil Bushrui is currently Director of the University of Maryland Kahlil Gibran Research and Studies Project, and is co-author (with Joe Jenkins) of the leading biography of Gibran, Kahlil Gibran: Man and Poet, also published by Oneworld.

I give it to my friends when they need encouragement!

It's worth making sure that the copy you settle able of on, has actual reproductions of his drawings, as some versions replace his with some unknown's drawings.

We already have another physical copy of The Prophet, but it tends to get misplaced because it is picked up and shared so frequently. The Prophet has aged well, perhaps because as our everyday lives get more frantic, the clarity of its expression feels even more refreshing. I purchased the Kindle version just so I could have a copy with me everywhere. I was pleasantly surprised by the thoughtful introduction, as well as the notes that follow unobtrusively after each of the passages. The editorial discussions are never too wordy, and frequently refer to Gibran's other influences or other works.

I have a beautiful copy of The Prophet Of Kahil Gibran,it is in poetry, hence the book also os artistically depicted.This one I ordered as a christmas present ,was disappointed with this copy, seemed all jumbled up with explanatory notes.Not doing justice to the words, the lay out is not good at all!!!!!!

I've ordered 5 different paperback copies of this book from Amazon. This is the nicest so far, of the paperback versions offered through Amazon. This copy, unlike several others, has original copies of Gibran's drawings inclusive and all the necessary text, (including the "Table of Contents.) I eventually furnish a copy of this book to everyone I love. It's worth making sure that the copy you settle able of on, has actual reproductions of his drawings, as some versions replace his with some unknown's drawings. I am disappointed that Amazon doesn't screen their product better.

Format: Paperback
I just re-read The Prophet. A book I read in my youth, but didn't fully appreciate; Today, it's Truths ring a little louder, a little clearer, and I still not only appreciate it, but now, with 30+ years of Life's "Ups and Downs" under my belt, I "understand" it's Truth and thus, it's worth. This book, hopefully, will live-on and on... Another similar book to The Prophet, is the recently published (c.2012) book, entitled, "NO SUFFERING: A Voice Crying Out From The Heart-Land." In the last several months, the editors at [...] (an Australian web bookstore), have, on their site, compared/"Related" NO SUFFERING to Gibran's The Prophet, among other timeless socio-political classics; Some of these other "Related" to NO SUFFERING books/authors are: "Paradise Lost" by Milton; "Don Juan" by Lord Byron; "Leaves Of Grass" by Walt Whitman; "The Iliad" and "The Odyssey" by Homer; along with books by W.B.Yeats, Alan Ginsberg, Leonard Cohen and Michael Leunig. Not bad-company for a modern/newly-published book. Please consider checking out NO SUFFERING, a Modern Classic; A book that can serve as a catalyst, a major "WAKE-UP!" call in these increasingly Dark, and Darkening Times; An intensely-"human" book, that is justly called-for, and now.
