Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

 The Treasured Writings of Kahlil Gibran represents the most comprehensive volume of works of the Lebanese poet and philosopher ever published. This enriching collection of stories, prose poems, verse, parables and autobiographical essays comprising the major body of Kahlil Gibran's works have been carefully translated and edited by a noted trio of Gibran scholars... Martin L. Wolf, Anthony R. Ferris and Andrew Dib Sherfan.

Each of the ten books included in this beautifully bound collectors' volume has been hailed by critics as literary masterpieces. The works in this collection clearly demonstrate why critics regard Kahlil Gibran as eminently among the world's great writers. His writings reflect the wistful beauty, fierce anger, lofty majesty and the abiding peace that Eastern wisdom achieves in its contemplation.

Often revered as the Dante of the twentieth century, the immortal savant of Lebanon, Kahlil Gibran created verses and lyric prose which impart to the reader a grand symphony of sparkling joys. These qualities have made Kahlil Gibran master of the written word.  

About the Author

Kahlil Gibran (January 6, 1883 - April 10, 1931) A Lebanese-American poet, novelist, and essayist, Gibran's lyrical writings offer a blend of philosophy, religion, mysticism, and parable. Gibran was born in Lebanon and immigrated with his family to the United States in 1895. He was educated in Beirut and studied art in Paris. He later returned to the United States and set down roots in New York City, where he stayed for the rest of this life. He wrote in both English and Arabic and was heavily influenced by William Blake and the Bible. In addition to his classic, The Prophet (1923), he wrote The Madman (1918), Broken Wings (1922), The Processions (1919), and Jesus, The Son of Man (1928).
