Author Bio: Kahlil Gibran

Kahlil Gibran (1883–1931), an artist, poet, and writer, was born in Lebanon and spent much of his productive life in the United States. He is known in the English-speaking world primarily for The Prophet, a book of twenty-six poetic essays published in 1923 which achieved cult status. He remains one of the world’s bestselling poets, second only to Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu. To many he is a genius whose philosophical and prophetic style convey important messages about life and humanity in a simple, yet beautifully eloquent manner, which was described by Library Journal as "poetic prose, half New Testament and half Walt Whitman.”
