Einhorn, a scholar of Gibran (1883–1931), debuts with a captivating centennial edition of Lebanese philosopher Gibran’s The Prophet that’s packed with newly discovered material, including 150 of Gibran’s never before published prose poems, aphorisms, and passages from The Earth Gods not included in any other edition. In The Prophet, the full text of which is included here, a wise man shares knowledge with his followers—allowing Gibran to expand on ideas about the power of love and how to faithfully yield to it, how children are their own individuals, how work is a fulfillment of life, and how a criminal is the burden of the community. In the new material, composed at the end of his career, Gibran takes on a melancholy, cautionary tone as he warns nations and their citizens against division. and asking, “How many dig their graves with their tongues?” Peppered with Gibran’s haunting and sensual artwork, the book provides a complete collection of insightful verses that will be uplifting to those going through difficult times. Both devotees and those new to Gibran’s work will love this. (Apr.)
