A worldwide best-seller since its date of original publication in 1923, The Prophet has become a token of free thought and intellectual betterment across many generations of readers. This unique and timeless classic is composed of 28 prose poetry fables, each examining a different facet of the human experience. A treasure worth holding close, The Prophet is an unforgettable book of poems worth savoring. The Prophet serves as an intricate examination of the world through the eyes of prophet Almustafa on his way back to his native country after having been in exile for the past twelve years. On the ship carrying him home, Almustafa becomes engulfed in conversation with various passengers on board. Each conversation differs from the last while all providing valuable experiences for Almustafa. Providing insight, clarity, and depth, Almustafa's musings on each subject make way for the ways in which one can better learn to understand the levels of deep human emotion. From the intricacies of human thought, and circumstance, Gibran's words have carried with them a certain meditative and instructive examination of what it feels like to be human. With honorable mentions from celebrity authors and poets, the importance of reading The Prophet cannot be overstated. An absolute must-read for anyone seeking emotional enlightenment, guidance, or human insight. With each poem and line varying in length and explanation, The Prophet is as topical today as it was when it was first published.
