Inspiring Purpose

Kahlil Gibran

He was born in Bisharri in the Lebanese mountains, but became a permanent resident of New York City from 1912. Early on he discovered a spiritual affinity with William Blake, especially as expressed in his drawings, and later with the work of Nietzsche. Among his earliest works is al-Ajnihah al-mutakassirah (1911, Eng trans Broken Wings, 1922), in which he liberated Arabic from its archaic, classical roots and replaced it with the language of nature, allegory, metaphor and symbolism. He is best known for The Prophet (1923), which was written in English. His books have sold more than 20 million copies worldwide, and his poetry has been translated into more than 20 languages. Later works include Jesus the Son of Man (1928) and The Garden of the Prophets (1934)
