An early collection of Kahlil Gibran’s writings showcases the many styles of this prolific thinker, all profoundly beautiful.
Kahlil Gibran reveals his vision of the soul and understanding of the world - past, present, and future - in this rich sampling of more than 20 works. Prose tales, fables, and poems evoke the mystic East and form a world at once powerful, tender, joyous, and melancholy. This collection, penned when Gibran was still a young writer, reveals many of the themes and styles plumbed throughout his life, including his lifelong struggle against injustice in "The Crucified", his heart-wrenching lament for a Lebanon shackled by tradition and politics in "My Countrymen", and his masterful use of symbolism and simile in "The Secrets of the Heart". A writer with infinite abilities and an eye to the immortal, Gibran continually seeks true beauty no matter the form.
