Synopsis

This exquisitely designed leather-bound edition comes with a gold-foiled cover, a ribbon bookmark, gilded edges and beautiful endpapers. Ideal to be read and treasured, it makes for a perfect addition to any library.

A book of twenty-six poetic essays written in English, Kahlil Gibran’s ‘The Prophet’ is full of religious inspirations. With illustrations drawn by the author himself, the book took more than eleven years to be formulated and perfected and is Gibran s best-known work.

It represents the height of his literary career as he came to be noted as 'the Bard of Washington Street.' Captivating and vivified with feeling, The Prophet has been translated into forty languages throughout the world and is considered the most widely read book of the twentieth century. Its first edition of 1300 copies sold out within a month.

In this beautiful meditation on the meaning of life, Al Mustafa, the prophet, is about to board a ship back to his homeland after 12 years spent living in exile in the city of Orphalese. Before he departs, he is stopped by a group of followers who ask him to share his wisdom. In twenty-six poetic essays, Al Mustafa offers profound and timeless insights on various aspects of life and the myriad impulses of the human heart and mind. He offers lessons on love, marriage, children, pain, friendship, beauty, religion, joy, knowledge, reason and passion, time, good and evil, pleasure, and death.
