Availability: In Stock

The prophet, Almustafa, is returning home aboard a ship after visiting Orphalese. All through this journey, the prophet interacts with people aboard the ship, which results in the fruition of the essays. Written in poetry prose style, these essays engage the diversity of life and the human condition as it embraces so many different paths. The book is divided into chapters that deal with the distinct and not necessarily exclusive facets of life. Gibran dispenses his enlightened understanding of philosophy and literature. He deals with love, marriage, children, clothing, consumerism, freedom, reasoning, passion and self-knowledge in the chapters. In The Prophet, there are 12 full length drawings that are illustrations made by Gibran himself. He breaks away from the traditional classical style in this book and engages the romantic prose poetry structure that is a mark of the renaissance in the Arabic literary school of thought. This book was originally written in English in 1923 and it enjoyed breezy acclaim at the time of its publication. However, in the 1960s, with the popularity of counterculture coming to the fore, this book’s fortune was turned and it became very popular. The book has been translated to over 40 languages since its release and is considered to be one of the bestselling books of all time. It sold over 100 million copies and is currently in its 163rd edition. This book has undergone multiple revisions and features new annotations. Almustafa is the prophet and his message endures even now as the 26 essays transcend their existence to attaining a status of immortality. Designed as inspirational fiction, it is used for spiritual and motivational counsel even today. The book was followed by a sequel, The Garden of The Prophet, which narrates the protagonist, Almustafa’s discussions with nine disciples.
