Gibran's work covers such themes as justice, religion, science, free will, love, happiness, the soul, the body, and death. He is widely considered to have been one of the most important figures in Arabic poetry and literature during the first half of the twentieth century. Other notable works by this author include: "Music" (1905), "Rebellious Spirits" (1908), and "Broken Wings" (1912). This volume is highly recommended for fans of Gibran's seminal work and it would make for a worthy addition to any collection.

We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
