SUMMARY
After Shakespeare and Lao Tzu, Kahlil Gibran is the most widely-read poet in history, and yet his captivating life story has remained largely untold to mass audiences for nearly a century. While Gibran is best known for his iconic series of prose poems, embodied in "The Prophet," he was also a prolific painter and author of many other written works, including extensive correspondence that illuminates his artistic and romantic self. He lived in the early twentieth-century in Lebanon, Boston, Paris and New York. His work emphasized "unity in diversity" through internationalism and respect for various cultures and religions, as well as his own spiritual vision and support for the rights of women. This official Kahlil Gibran biography will be the first major theatrical feature to tell the story of how a poor Lebanese boy, from a remote mountain village, came with his family to America, and became a global literary figure and artist.
