Item description for The Prophet & The Wanderer (Classic Fiction) by Kahlil Gibran...
Khalil Gibran (1883-1931) was Lebanese by birth but spent a major part of his life in America in the early part of the 20th century. He wrote many collections of stories with a wise or whimsical tone, but none more popular than The Prophet, his first collection, or The Wanderer, his final anthology.

More About Kahlil Gibran
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. 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 26 poetic essays.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Prophet & The Wanderer (Classic Fiction)?
Beautiful Use of Language Jan 28, 2010
I listened to the unabridged audiobook. The language is beautiful. My favorite "chapter" from The Prophet is "Clothes," which ends with the line (as I recall it), "And forget not that the Earth delights to feel your bare feet and the wind longs to play with your hair." A long walk on pretty beach on a windy day proves that passage to be oh so true.

I had a greater expectation with this author I love theatrics so I will like music.
