Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This collection of thoughts by Kahlil Gibran demonstrates three major aspects of his genius: the fiery prophet, assailing the corruptions of Syrian governmental and upper social circles with the wrath and scorn of Biblical seers; the poet of love, apostophizing beauty, youth, and nature, particularly the wonderful vistas of Lebanon in poetry of passionate tenderness; and the author of the remarkable poetic narratives in which Gibran's mystical, spiritual vision of the transmigration of souls is embodied in tales of lovers tragically parted in one existence and rapturously reunited, after centuries of separation, in a later incarnation. **Lightning Print On Demand Title

Synopsis:

This collection of thoughts by Kahlil Gibran, author of "The Prophet", "The Broken Wings", "The Voice of the Master", and other twentieth-century classics, demonstrates three major aspects of his genius.

Here is the fiery prophet, assailing the corruptions of Syrian governmental and upper social circles with the wrath and scorn of Biblical seers.

Here, too, is the poet of love, apostrophizing beauty, youth and nature, particularly the wonderful vistas of Lebanon, with its cedar groves and mountains, in poetry of passionate tenderness.

And above all, here is the author of the remarkable poetic narratives in which Gibran's mystical, spiritual vision of the transmigration of souls is embodied in tales of lovers tragically parted in one existence and rapturously reunited, after centuries of separation, in a later incarnation.

The spiritual message of the great Lebanese prophet and poet is conveyed with exceptional beauty and power in these sensitive writings.
