Product description

About the Author

Kahlil Gibran was born in Bsharri, Lebanon in 1883 into an impoverished Christian family whose fortunes found a new low when his father, a feckless tax collector, was imprisoned for embezzlement. Taken aged 12 by his redoubtable mother with his brother and sisters to start a new life America, Kahlil was transformed into a talented artist and poet whose work was destined to bring him global fame. His masterpiece, The Prophet, first published in 1923, is among the most-read books of the last century, reaching huge sales in the New Age era of 1960s when it inspired the lyric-writing of John Lennon among others. But Gibran enjoyed only scant recognition in his own time. His health broken by chronic illness and self-neglect, he died aged only 48 in his adopted home of New York in 1931. He is buried at Bsharri, where his tomb, now a museum, is visited by more than 50,000 pilgrims annually.
