Visions of the Prophet

Visions of the Prophet Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Visions of the Prophet brings more of Gibrans writings to an audience curious about who Gibran was and what else he wrote. A companion volume to The Eye of the Prophet, Visions is Gibrans most intellectually challenging book yet. Poems, short essays, and the dramatic play "The Many-columned City of Iram" trace the development of a young man through middle age to the end of his life, when he writes movingly about facing death. Mystic, patriot, and poet, Gibran urges us to uproot complacency and corruption, and champion Love and Truth.

Synopsis:

The millions who know and love "The Prophet" will find this new selection of poems by Kahlil Gibran thoughtful, lyrical, and true to the various stages of a person's life. Composed over the course of his life, from the first piece written on his 25th birthday to the last poem penned shortly before his death, Gibran's inspirational writings on love, death, and the care of the soul reflect the moods and abilities of each age and each passage.

About the Author

Kahlil Gibran is known to Western readers for his phenomenally successful poem The Prophet, which sold over six million copies worldwide. He was born in 1883 in Lebanon and lived in the Middle East until 1921, when he moved to the United States. Written in Arabic, his books have been translated into twenty languages. Poet, philosopher, and artist, he was compared by August Rodin, the French sculptor, to William Blake.
