Works on joy and sorrow, life and love, by Kahlil Gibran, one of the most celebrated modern philosophers

The collection includes The Broken Wings, an exquisitely tender, poetic love story; The Voice of the Master, a remarkable study of life; and Thoughts and Meditations, containing Gibran’s spiritual message to the world. Each work, studded with gems of wisdom and truth, adds up to a warm, lively, and philosophical portrait of one of the twentieth century’s greatest poetic masters.

Acerca del autor (2011)

Khalil Gibran (1883–1931) was an essayist, novelist, and mystic poet. He wrote The Prophet, a collection of philosophical essays that went on to become one of the bestselling books of the twentieth century. Though he was born in Lebanon, he moved to Boston’s South End as a child and studied art with Auguste Rodin in Paris for two years before launching his literary career. Much of Gibran’s work contains themes of religion and Christianity as well as spiritual love.
