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, Arabic.
Translated superbly into English, here are the nine great books, gathered together in one giant volume and now available in a paperback edition for Gibran's myriad 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 the 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 here 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 seeks eternally in contemplation. 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contain the texts of "Secrets of the Heart", "Tears and Laughter" and "Spirits Rebellious", together with hitherto unpublished writings by Gibran, which are included in the brilliant preface by the distinguished Gibran scholar, Martin L. Wolf.

This is such a shame. I am a huge fan of the eloquent and spiritually rich writings of Kahlil Gibran. However, these were massacred by the forced, jarring voice of the narrator, who tried far too hard. I felt as if I was being almost shouted at, and having persevered through the first chapter or so - lured by the sweet majesty of the writing - I threw in the towel before my brain rattled. I returned the audiobook and requested a refund.
