A critical exploration of the life's work of one of the twentieth century's most important philosophers and poets, Kahlil Gibran Through his fiction, essays, poems, and art, Kahlil Gibran inspired a devoted international following and transformed modern Arabic literature. In this book, Joseph P.

Excerpts from Gibran's letters provide a window into his mind, heart, and soul, creating a biography of this groundbreaking, mystical writer unlike any other.   This systematic collection introduces Gibran as a "people's philosopher," who used simple, straightforward language to reveal a worldview of rich, deep meaning.
