A Treasury Of Kahlil Gibran


Description for A TREASURY OF KAHLIL GIBRAN by Kahlil Gibran and translated byAnthony Rizcellah Ferris:

Kahlil Gibran, author of THE PROPHET, is known throughout the world as The Immortal Prophet of Lebanon and the Savant of his Age. The very heart of the mystic East emerges in this monumental volume of the magnificent poetry and prose that he wrote in his beloved mother-tongue, Arabis.

Translated superbly into English, here are nine great books, gathered together into one giant volume as beautiful as its contents, and now available to Gibran's immense number of admirers in America.

In these writings, the Dante of the Twentieth Century offers verses and lyric prose which possess all the grandeur of rich music. Here are great truths and heartening joys, drawn from the tears and sufferings of man. Here are pages that sparkle with simile and symbolism, of which Gibran is the world's unquestioned master.

And hers is the profound exaltation of a great soul that has found salvation in the heart of sorrow. In this book you will find wistful beauty, fierce anger, spellbinding majesty, and the abiding peace that Eastern wisdom sees eternally in contemplation.

At the same time tender and powerful, simple and tremendous, these writings show clearly why Gibran rans so high in the world of fine literature.

The nine books which make up A TREASURY OF KAHLIL GIBRAN contain the texts of SECRETS OF THE HEART, TEARS AND LAUGHTER AND SPIRITS REBELLIOUS, together with hitherto unpublished writings by Gibran which are included in the brilliant introduction by the distinguished Gibran scholar, Martin L Wolf.
