About the author (2011)

Kahlil Gibran was a Lebanese artist, poet, and author. Born in Bsharri, Lebanon, Gibran immigrated with his parents to Boston in 1895 before settling in New York City where he studied art and began his literary career, writing in both English and Arabic. His best-known work is The Prophet, published in 1923, which has become one of the best-selling books of all time. Like the majority of Gibran's works, The Prophet dealt with spiritual love and religion. Gibran passed away in 1931.
