Kahlil Gibran

Spirits Rebellious
The Madman
The Forerunner

Born in Lebanon in 1883, Kahlil Gibran spent most of his life in America. Besides attaining success as an artist in the symbolist tradition, it was here that Gibran found his calling “to write for the soul,” an enthusiastic patron in Mary Haskell and, soon after, recognition as a modern-day mystic. The lucidity of his worldview endeared him to his readers the world over, in America particularly where he influenced the popular culture in the sixties.

While his representative work, The Prophet contains the quintessence of Gibran’s philosophy of life, his repudiation of feudal oppression, male chauvinism and religious hypocrisy rings through all his works – whether one reads his short-story anthologies (Nymphs of the Valley and Spirits Rebellious), prose poems (Tears and Laughter), parables (The Madman, The Forerunner and The Wanderer), aphorisms (Sand and Foam) or the only novelette he ever wrote, The Broken Wings. The theme of exile finds recurrent expression in his work. Nostalgia about the Lebanese mountains echoes loud and clear throughout; a deep sense of being uprooted from his native land stirred Gibran in his later life to write for journals published by the Lebanese and Arab communities in America.

In the years following his death in 1931, at the age of forty-eight, Gibran came to be regarded as the Prophet himself.

Kahlil Gibran - The Book
Probably the most widely read and discussed mystic poet-philosopher of the last century, Kahlil Gibran, born in Lebanon in 1883, spent most of his life in America. Besides attaining success as an artist in the symbolist tradition, it was here that Gibran found his calling "to write for the soul," an enthusiastic patron in Mary Haskell and, soon after, recognition as a modern-day mystic. The lucidity of his worldview endeared him to a wide range of readers the world over, but particularly in America, where he influenced the popular culture in the sixties. His writings have not only inspired and influenced generations together but also have made the entire realm of high philosophy much simpler and graspable for the common reader.
Gibran's philosophy of life, his repudiation of feudal oppression, male chauvinism and religious hypocrisy rings through all his works. This selection features an anthology of four short stories published originally in Arabic as Spirits Rebellious (1908), and two collections of parables - The Forerunner (1920) and The Madman (1932).
