Overview

 

For the first time, all the major works of this beloved writer are gathered together in one hardcover volume.

Poet, artist, and mystic, Kahlil Gibran was born in 1883 to a poor Christian family in Lebanon and immigrated to the United States as an adolescent. His masterpiece, The Prophet, a book of poetic essays that he began while still a youth in Lebanon, is one of the most cherished books of our time and has sold millions of copies in more than twenty languages since its publication in 1923. But all of Gibran’s works—essays, stories, parables, and prose poems—are imbued with equally powerful simplicity and wisdom, whether they are addressing marriage or children, friendship or grief, work or pleasure. Perhaps no other twentieth-century writer has touched the hearts and minds of so remarkably varied and widespread a readership.

Included in this volume are The Prophet, The Wanderer, Jesus the Son of Man, A Tear and a Smile, Spirits Rebellious, Nymphs of the Valley, Prose Poems, The Garden of the Prophet, The Earth Gods, Sand and Foam, The Forerunner, and The Madman.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

When the secret history of the 20th century in America is written, and we have access to that true inner life, we shall see the prominence of the poets readers really loved, not the poets they were told to admire or pretended to understand: Edgar Guest, Sara Teasdale, and Gibran, whose words used to be heard at thousands of weddings and high occasions every year; only Rumi (interestingly, another Middle Eastern mystic) has begun to challenge Gibran's primacy in the American imagination. Born to a Maronite Catholic family in Lebanon in the 1880s, Gibran came to this country when he was 12 years old, where his undoubted talent as an artist attracted the attention of a succession of patrons; he studied briefly with no less a titan than Rodin. He began to write-his paintings and sketches increasingly served as oblique illustrations for his work-in a style that equally recalled the New Testament and Whitman, as his paintings faintly echoed Blake and Simeon Solomon. The steady triumph of his fourth work in English, The Prophet, is part of the success story of the then-young publishing company Alfred A. Knopf, and this year Knopf has given Gibran the loving, acid-free treatment, collecting all his English works into one handsome volume.

It is fashionable to deride Gibran as a poet, and at length, his pseudo-Authorized Version, para-Arabian Nightsvoice is indeed exhausting-but his counsel is far from pernicious. We forget how Christian he was-one lengthy work in this volume, Jesus the Son of Man, is nothing less than a polychoral fictional biography of Jesus. Gibran is just alien enough for enchantment, like Valentino's sheik; the bible of the unchurched, he gives usa kind of gospel without difficulty, Christianity without sharp edges. His poetic sensibility is very much that of the fin de siecle; in him, the aesthetic dreams of the 1890s go on and on into the 21st century. We may know The Prophettoo well to love it now, but the aphorisms of the earlier volumes, The Madmanand The Forerunner, reward reading-they give us Gibran almost Nietzschean in his spikiness and humor, before high solemnity overtook him. Whether or not he is a Yeats or a Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Gibran is hugely important, and this handsome book is essential for all collections.
