A Second Treasury of Kahlil Gibran
Works on joy and sorrow, life and love, by Kahlil Gibran, one of the most celebrated modern philosophers
In this magnificent volume, Gibran’s writings have been translated from their native Arabic to English by Anthony Rizcallah Ferris. The collection includes The Broken Wings, an exquisitely tender, poetic love story; The Voice of the Master, a remarkable study of life; and Thoughts and Meditations, containing Gibran’s spiritual message to the world. Each work, studded with gems of wisdom and truth, adds up to a warm, lively, and philosophical portrait of one of the twentieth century’s greatest poetic masters.
