In Kahlil Gibran's inspirational masterpiece-the most famous work of
spiritual fiction of the twentieth century-a prophet named Almustafa is
about to board a ship to travel back to his homeland after twelve years in
exile when he's stopped by a group of people who ask him to share his
wisdom before he leaves. In twenty-eight poetic essays, he does so,
offering profound and timeless insights on many aspects of life, including
love, pain, friendship, family, beauty, religion, joy, sorrow, and death.
An immediate success when it was first published in 1923, The Prophet is a
modern classic, having been translated into more than forty languages and
sold more than nine million copies in the United States alone. The message
it imparts, of finding divinity through love, made it the bible of 1960s
culture and continues to touch hearts and minds across generations and
national borders. This edition is illustrated with twelve of Gibran's
famous visionary paintings and features a foreword by Rupi Kaur.
