The bond which brought together Kahlil Gibran and May Ziadah - the former the most acclaimed Lebanese poet of all time, and the latter one of the foremost women writers in Arabic literature - was one of the very rarest kind.
Gibran and May Ziadah knew one another solely from the letters they exchanged and from each other's work; they never met, but a correspondence began in mutual admiration which lasted until Gibran's death in 1931.
These letters shed an entirely new light on Gibran's innermost feelings and offer an unusual glimpse into the mind of the author of the most widely-read book of the twentieth century, 'The Prophet'. Illustrated throughout with original pen and ink sketches by Gibran and facsimiles of correspondence, this is an exquisite testament to enduring love.
