The Prophet

Penguin Classics

Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

This Penguin Classic is performed by Antonio Aakeel, star of Eaten by Lions. This definitive recording includes an Introduction by Robin Waterfield.

First published in the 1920s, The Prophet became the bible of 1960s culture and was credited with founding the New Age movement, yet it still continues to inspire people around the world today. A hugely influential guide to living, Gibran's Prophet speaks of many things central to daily life: love, marriage, death, beauty, passion, eating, work and play. The spiritual message he imparts, of finding divinity through love, blends Eastern mysticism, religious faith and philosophy with simple, comprehensible advice.
