First of all, let me begin by saying I really do not like religious poetry. I find that the constant references to God and a higher power irk me, as someone who's religion only believes in an ideal and not a deity.
That being said, I absolutely fell in love with this poetry book. The writing was exquisite, an absolutely beautiful piece of writing that read as a story. Gibran has created such a remarkable world within this book, something that kept me hanging on every single word. It has made me question life, my morals, death, friendship, and every other topic that is featured within this small book.
I cannot explain how much this poetry has spoken to me, has made me think and discuss topics that have always been left unsaid with friends. I have read the poems in this over and over and would more than gladly read this book again from cover to cover.
This is a work of pure genius, and I think it's something that should be shown to everyone, especially as it is inspired, partly, by Islam.
It's a book that shows religion is about care and love, not destruction.
I cannot recommend this book enough. Everyone should read this, no matter what their interests. I wish I had been given a chance to study this in school and to have myself enlightened long before I happened to find this when I did a week or so ago.
Gibran's writing is absolutely stunning and I am left in awe and self-reflection. Please, please, read this book. I recommend this for every one.
The Prophet is essentially a religious book so, as an atheist, I made assumptions before the first page. In reality, while Gibran assumes the existence of God, he does not hammer home any particular faith as 'the true way', but rather addresses various aspects of life - love, work, marriage, food - and has his Prophet offer ideas regarding simple and humane ways of living in harmony with our communities. The simple question and answer structure is concise and effective. I am happy that I will now have a much greater level of understanding when I see Gibran's name dropped elsewhere and I found much food for thought in his philosophy. I can quite see why The Prophet has such widespread appeal. It's a beautiful book.
