Kahlil Gibran: Beyond BordersKahlil G. Gibran, Jean Gibran

A comprehensive illustrated biography of Kahlil Gibran, Lebanese-American artist, poet and author of the best-selling inspirational fiction The Prophet.

Kahlil Gibran was a Lebanese-born artist, poet, writer and polymath who emigrated to America as a young man in the 1890s, where he became a successful artist and prose poet. His book The Prophet (1923), a series of twenty-six philosophical essays written in poetic English prose became a world-wide bestseller after a sluggish start, selling 40 million copies, and becoming a particular favourite of the 1960s counterculture.

As a writer, Gibran encouraged a renaissance in Arab literature; as an artist he painted hundreds of canvases including portraits of artistic celebrities. Raised a Maronite Catholic, his spirituality thought embraces elements of other traditions including Sufi mysticism and the Baha'i faith.

 
Kahlil G. Gibran is a sculptor and biographer and the cousin and namesake of Kahlil Gibran. Jean Gibran has written on women's heritage and the art history of Boston. They have produced this volume in assocation with the Interlink Publishing Gibran project.
