Originally published in 1923, The Prophet continues to inspire millions worldwide with its timeless words of love and mystical longing. Writing with insight, hope, and a remarkable compassion for the human condition, Kahlil Gibran explores ideas of joy and sorrow, friendship, good and evil, pleasure, reason and passion, expressing humanitys yearning for a Unity of Being, only achieved through love.

Introduced and annotated throughout by world expert Suheil Bushrui, this revised and updated edition is a truly enlightening experience for anyone seeking solace and wisdom in the chaotic modern age.

About the Author

Poet, philosopher, and artist, Kahlil Gibran (1883–1931) was born in Lebanon and moved to Boston when he was twelve. Following a period of study in Paris, Gibran moved to New York, and it was here that he was to compose The Prophet. He died in New York in 1931, at the age of 48.

Professor Suheil Bushrui is currently Director of the University of Maryland Kahlil Gibran Research and Studies Project, and is co-author (with Joe Jenkins) of the leading biography of Gibran, Kahlil Gibran: Man and Poet, also published by Oneworld.
