More About Kahlil Gibran

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Kahlil Gibran was born in 1883 in Lebanon and died in New York in 1931. His family emigrated to the United States in 1895. In his early teens, the artistry of Gibran's drawings caught the eye of his teachers and he was introduced to the avant-garde Boston artist, photographer, and publisher Fred Holland Day, who encouraged and supported Gibran in his creative endeavors. A publisher used some of Gibran's drawings for book covers in 1898, and Gibran held his first art exhibition in 1904 in Boston. In 1908, Gibran went to study art with Auguste Rodin in Paris for two years, and he later studied art in Boston. While most of Gibran's early writing was in Arabic, most of his work published after 1918 was in English. Gibran's best-known work is The Prophet, a book composed of 28 poetic essays.

Kahlil Gibran lived in Besharre. Kahlil Gibran was born in 1883 and died in 1931.

Reviews - What do customers think about El Profeta: (The Prophet--Spanish-language edition) (Vintage Espanol)?

Arrogance and neglect in translation  May 12, 2008
Before I purchased this book I would like to have known that the translator was not up to the task. El Profeta/the Prophet (Alba) is a translation of Kahil (Jalil) Gibrán's wonderful book The Prophet. The original is not under review here but the translation. The quality of the translation, sometimes reasonable, is often not good:
Gibran often repeats a phrase and the translator has deemed it necessary to change this by changing the language for the repeat, thus disturbing the rhythm and the simplicity (Say not... Say not ... Say rather becomes No digías... Tampoco digías... Decid, sin embargo...).
Sometimes words are not even understood - longing is translated as something to do with a long time (longing equals long). This is in De las casas - ...nor shelter your longing becomes por mucho tiempo.
On one occasion a whole paragraph of the original is omitted in the translation (In De la razón y de la pasión).
Plural words (of the days and the nights) are translated in the singular (del día y de la noche); (the songs and the silences of night) becomes (la música y el silencio de la noche).
'That which you have always known in thought' is translated as 'lo que ya sabías desde un principio.'
'Dreams' are translated as 'fantasía'.
In De la Alegría y de la tristeza, Joy and Sorrow are described in the original English as 'inseperable'. Mr. Cruz Martínez has translated this with 'insuperables'.
The book is peppered with triple asterisks to divide each section into subsections. Why? those subdivisions are not in the original. And the pictures are in the wrong places.
Why all this? Why treat such a wonderful book with such arrogance and superficiality? On the back of the book is written: ... las obras, con frecuencia maltradas, de Jalil Gibrán. ...and now again.
Prosa Poetica  Aug 8, 2002
No es solo mi favorito sino tambien uno de los mas bellos libros que he leido hasta ahora,Kahlil Gibran con magnifica destreza y una sensibilidad incomparables sabe llegar a la escencia de la sabiduria;el corazon.
Will Remain With You Forever!  Mar 17, 1999
I was fortunate to read Dr. Carlos Seguin's translation (Peru). He added a chapter to his Spanish language translation: About the Good Bye. He said there is no real good bye, like the river that passes through... its water remains on the land or the trees it touches. In the same way, this book and its wonderful teaching will never leave you.. they will remain with you and be part of your life. You will never say good bye to The Prophet, his teachings will be with you forever.
