An enjoyable, generously illustrated book that will stimulate readers to reconsider Gibran, his work, and his heritage.


Painter and poet, immigrant, rebel, global citizen, author of the beloved classic, The Prophet. Kahlil Gibran: Beyond Borders tells the inspiring saga of the artists life and creative vision Gibrans story is one of overcoming barriers faced by many immigrants at the turn of the twentieth centuryand still today. From his childhood and spiritual roots in Mount Lebanon to the city wilderness of urban America; from his apprenticeships in the creative circles of Boston, Beirut, Paris, and New York to his art and activism for Greater Syria; and from his friendships and loves to his emergence during the populist waves of the early 1900s as a peoples poe, Gibran crafted an art embracing a universal message that has become treasured in over forty languages. Exiled between the worlds and conflicts of the Middle East and the West, Gibran defied boundaries to assert a vision of an underlying humanity and faith that people share. This colorful, richly illustrated biography draws on a lifetime of dedicated, persistent research to bring Gibrans compelling story into our time. It will make obsolete all previous accounts and will become the definitive study of this extraordinary and well-loved writer.
