About the Author—

Kahlil Gibran was born in 1883 in Lebanon and died in New York in 1931. His family emigrated to the United States in 1895. In his early teens, the artistry of Gibran''s drawings caught the eye of his teachers and he was introduced to the avant-garde Boston artist, photographer, and publisher Fred Holland Day, who encouraged and supported Gibran in his creative endeavours. A publisher used some of Gibran''s drawings for book covers in 1898, and Gibran held his first art exhibition in 1904 in Boston. In 1908, it is speculated that Gibran went to study art with Auguste Rodin in Paris for two years, and he later studied art in Boston. While most of Gibran''s early writing was in Arabic, most of his work published after 1918 was in English. Gibran's best-known work is The Prophet, a book composed of 26 poetic essays and 11 illustrations.
