Prophet: The Life and Times of Kahlil Gibran
Publisher Alfred A. Knopf published all of the 12 major works in English by Lebanese poet, artist and mystic, Kahlil (born “Khalil”) Gibran (1883-1931), collected here in hardcover. These are not his “Complete Works,” however, because, although he wrote increasingly in English after immigration to Boston in 1995 and especially after settlement in New York in 1918, he also wrote in Arabic throughout his brilliant life of only 48 years. The volume lacks notes and bibliography but makes available the complete text of his dozen, widely-translated, English works, including The Prophet (1923). Buy here.
