An early collection of Kahlil Gibran's writings, showcasing the many styles of this prolific thinker, all profoundly beautiful

Kahlil Gibran reveals his vision of the soul and understanding of the world—past, present, and future—in this rich sampling of more than twenty works. Prose tales, fables, and poems evoke the mystic East and form a world at once powerful, tender, joyous, and melancholy. This collection, penned when Gibran was still a young writer, reveals many of the themes and styles plumbed throughout his life, including his lifelong struggle against injustice in "The Crucified," his heart-wrenching lament for a Lebanon shackled by tradition and politics in "My Countrymen," and his masterful use of symbolism and simile in "The Secrets of the Heart."

A writer with infinite abilities, Gibran continually seeks true beauty, no matter the form.
