Description

Rich in timeless wisdom and beautiful poetic language, this spiritual classic is "exquisite . . . simply a masterpiece" (The Independent, London). As the wise man Almustafa prepares to leave the island where he has lived in exile from his home for twelve years, the community gathers around him, beseeching him to share his wisdom before he departs. Within this framework, the beloved prophet offers meditations on love, marriage, children, giving, eating and drinking, work, joy and sorrow, houses, clothes, buying and selling, crime and punishment, laws, freedom, reason and passion, pain, self-knowledge, teaching, friendship, talking, time, good and evil, prayer, pleasure, beauty, religion, and death. Written by a Lebanese-American poet, The Prophet was an immediate success upon its publication in 1923. Translated into more than one hundred languages and selling millions of copies, the book's popularity has never waned. In the 1960s, it was freshly discovered and venerated by the counterculture, and in 2014, it was adapted into an animated film. The universal truths embedded in these twenty-six prose poems continue to resonate for spiritual seekers. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
