Kahlil Gibran - Selected Verses for Meditation - Mystical Poetry

Lebanon-born writer and artist Kahlil Gibran (1883 1931) became known for his mystical Arabic and English works, most notably the 1923 publication, 'The Prophet.' Kahlil Gibran moved to the United States in 1895 and was exposed to Boston's artistic community. Initially showing promise as an artist, he also began writing newspaper columns and books in Arabic, drawing attention for his prose poems. After moving to New York City, Gibran began writing books in English. The popularity of The Prophet endured well after the author's death in 1931, making him the third-best-selling poet of all time.
