Lebanese-American author Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet is one of the world’s best-selling books of poetry. In twenty-six poetic essays, Gibran writes from the perspective of fictional prophet Almustafa, who has recently returned to his place of birth, Orphalese. The poems detail Almustafa’s philosophies on important subjects such as crime and punishment, death, and marriage, as well as everyday subjects such as clothing and eating and drinking. Other poetic essays in The Prophet include “Joy and Sorrow,” “Freedom,” and “Good and Evil.” This unabridged edition was first published in 1923.
