One of the world's favourite poets, Kahlil Gibran was never more profound than when he wrote about love. He believed it was the raison d'etre of the universe.
With the simplicity and lyrical beauty of The Prophet, his reflections on love and friendship have been gathered together in one volume and illustrated with the poet's own paintings.
Compiled by the world's leading expert on Gibran, this beautiful collection is a timeless celebration of humanity's most enduring force, and a perfect gift for those tired of cliched romantic verse.
Kahlil Gibran (1883 - 1931) was one of the twentieth century's most inspirational poets and authors. Influenced by Blake, Nietsche, and the King James Bible, he is best-known for his masterpiece, The Prophet. His books have sold more than ten million copies in English alone.
