The Essential Gibran
Offering a wide variety of theme, occasion, mood, and form - ‘The Essential Gibran’ is a volume of selected passages celebrating Gibran's style and thought
Kahlil Gibran's essential style is captured in reflective poetic prose, dramatic sketches, allegories and parables, national and international addresses, and romantic writings of all kinds. Evident throughout is his abiding respect for universal human rights, the equality of men and women, and religious tolerance. This is a wonderful insight into a universal figure whose profound humanity and concern for the highest standards of integrity in both a moral and literary sense transcends the boundaries between cultures, which have all too often found themselves in opposition with one another.
