A selection of writings on love, marriage and the spiritual union of souls. For Kahlil Gibran, love was the supreme way of achieving self-realization and completeness as a human being. Such themes dominate the section on love in Gibran's work "The Prophet", and are expressed with equal eloquence in his earlier Arabic stories, parables and prose poems. This is a translation of one of Gibran's major Arabic texts, adding a fresh dimension to the understanding of his work.
