Product description

From the Publisher

Kahlil Gibran was born into an impoverished Christian family in Bsharri, Lebanon in 1883. His masterpiece, <i>The Prophet</i>, was first published in 1923 and is among the most-read books of the last century, inspiring 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 in 1931 aged just 48, in his adopted home of New York. He is buried at Bsharri, where his tomb, now a museum, is visited by more than 50,000 pilgrims annually. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

Euer Freund ist die Antwort auf eure Nöte. Er ist das Feld, das ihr mit Liebe besät und mit Dankbarkeit erntet. Wenn euer Freund frei heraus spricht, fürchtet ihr weder das 'Nein' in euren Gedanken, noch haltet ihr mit mit dem 'Ja' zurück. Im Tau kleiner Dinge findet das Herz seinen Morgen und wird erfrischt. (Khalil Gibran) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Khalil Gibran (/dʒɪˈbrɑːn/; Full Arabic name Gibran Khalil Gibran, sometimes spelled Kahlil;[a] Arabic: جبران خليل جبران‎ / ALA-LC: Jubrān Khalīl Jubrān or Jibrān Khalīl Jibrān) (January 6, 1883 – April 10, 1931) was a Lebanese-American artist, poet, and writer of the New York Pen League.

Khalil Gibran was born in the town of Bsharri in the Mount Lebanon Mutasarrifate, Ottoman Empire (north of modern-day Lebanon), to Khalil Gibran and Kamila Gibran(Rahmeh). As a young man Khalil emigrated with his family to the United States, where he studied art and began his literary career, writing in both English and Arabic. 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 Laozi.
