Publisher's Summary

Almustafa has been exiled in the island city of Orphalese for twelve years when he sees his ship coming with the mist. Before he sets sail, the beloved prophet is asked by his followers to impart his truth. In these twenty-eight poetic essays, he offers profound inspiration on such matters of love and friendship, freedom and self-knowledge, joy and sorrow, pleasure, prayer, and death. In doing so, Almustafa offers a universal serenity. 

A Lebanese émigré to the United States, Kahlil Gibran wrote The Prophet to transcend the barriers between East and West and to open up new possibilities for spiritual guidance. Today it stands as one of the most beloved and translated books in history. 

Revised edition: Previously published as The Prophet, this edition of The Prophet (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.
