This book, which is the last one that Kahlil Gibran wrote shortly before he died in 1931, is truly one of his finest. The parables and poems are comparable to his "The Forefunner" and "The Madman." It's teachings leave you with a strong sense of newly found compassion and wisdom. The wander's stories are both profound and alive in this book

As usual Gibran is very romantic and at the same time exquisitely pragmatic. I don't recall any violence because with Gibran any violence is so much a part of the story that it ceases to be about the violence and is, instead, part of the message.

The author's ability to see a situation as it exists while ordinary folks just carry on as though it is normal is, of course, superb.

I love reading Gibran because he teaches without the reader realizing it and because he sees what we don't see and he shows it to us and, well because he is Gibran.

As always, it was great reading Gibran. This book is a series of 1 or 2 page ancedotes. I think a philosopher would understand them better than I but I did get some of them. Fortunately, you do not always have to understand everything to enjoy good writing and prose.

When do you play 'on muted strings'? When you are 50 and seeking to make sense of the path you trod. This is the duo of tales Hamsun produced in his middle years, that draws the curtain on his early triumphs and (as it transpires) sets the scene for his later masterpieces the Wayfarers and Growth of the Soil. The division between the narrator and the author is threadbare here, artistically necessary; and through this you get an insight into the characters that burned so brightly in the earlier works but who were much more detached from the writer. Hamsun sets this scene in the opening pages, the sense of being back to somewhere he knew before. And then the muted strings can play. A masterpiece again.

Not as great as The Prophet ... but wonderful nonetheless.
