Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Eye of the Prophet is a startling new collection of Gribran's writings translated from Arabic into French and now to English. Here Gibran is the poetic, philosophical moralist, grounded in Islam, Buddhism, and Christianity, questing for the best in humanity, refusing to separate man from the natural world. The ordinary work and life of man has the potential to be inherently noble, Gibran believes, if man could only enact his affairs with the sublimity of nature's creations. The Eye of the Prophet is a treasury of wisdom, lyrical joy, and inspiration. With its forceful and rhythmic language, it speaks to our challenging times as a worthy companion to the The Prophet.

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.
