About the Author: Kahlil Gibran

Khalil Gibran (also spelled Kahlil Gibran; Arabic: جبران خليل جبران ) was a Lebanese-American artist, poet, and writer.
Born in the town of Bsharri in modern-day Lebanon (then part of Ottoman Mount Lebanon), as a young man he emigrated with his family to the United States where he studied art and began his literary career. In the Arab world, Gibran is regarded as a literary and political rebel. His romantic style was at the heart of a renaissance in modern Arabic literature, especially prose poetry, breaking away from the classical school. In Lebanon, he is still celebrated as a literary hero. He is chiefly known in the English-speaking world for his 1923 book The Prophet, an early example of inspirational fiction including a series of philosophical essays written in poetic English prose. The book sold well despite a cool critical reception, gaining popularity in the 1930s and again especially in the 1960s counterculture. Gibran is the third best-selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu.

Almustafa is about to return home after spending twelve years in Orfalese. However, before taking the boat that will take him to his city, he entertains himself with a group of people with discussions on various aspects of the human condition. Divided into twenty-six short poetic essays, The Prophet shows thoughts of Almustaf about such disparate subjects as love, work, joy, God, friendship, crime and beauty. A humane treatise, transcendental and poetic, which became a classic of the literature of the twentieth century and had continued with The Garden of the Prophet, when Almustaf reaches its home island and met with ten of his disciples,-among them the beautiful Karina- then head for heights and, once there, let himself carried away by the haze.
