Description
Information
In a new definitive biography Robin Waterfield traces the influences that shaped Gibran, from the decadence of the fin-de-siecle Boston to the vigour of Greenwich Village in its heyday before the First World War. He explores Gibran's development from wounded Romantic and angry young man to his final metamorphosis as the Prophet of New York.

Born in 1883 in the mountains of Northern Lebanon, Gibran emigrated to the USA with his family in 1895. The road to the success of 'The Prophet' was not smooth and Gibran himself did not live to see the phenomenal sales which the book went on to achieve. He died in 1931, just over 7 years after the publication of his best-known book.

Robin Waterfield offers a thorough treatment of Gibran's life and work in an entirely new appraisal which reveals a real man - who loved and lost, who was unhappy and troubled, and who burned himself out with overwork and alcoholism. 'Prophet' provides extraordinary insights into the character of Kahlil Gibran.
