Kahlil GIBRAN --- Cliquer pour agrandir
Kahlil Gibran, poet, philosopher, and artist, was born in Lebanon, a land that has produced many prophets. The millions of Arabic-speaking peoples familiar with his writings in that language consider him the genius of his age. But he was a man whose fame and influence spread far beyond the Near East. His poetry has been translated into more than twenty languages. His drawings and paintings have been exhibited in the great capitals of the world and compared by Auguste Rodin to the work of William Blake. In the United States, which he made his home during the last twenty years of his life, he began to write in English. The Prophet and his other books of poetry, illustrated with his mystical drawings, are known and loved by innumerable Americans who find in them an expression of the deepest impulses of man's heart and mind.

Commentaire :

"There are fifty or more of these tales of The Wanderer, each one woven of the very fabric of Eastern thought and phraseology. Nothing of the West is here. It is as though, with his life drawing to its close, his native mood and atmosphere occupied the poet's being, even as it did his constant thought and conversation. For more and more he talked of his childhood and his youth, of his mother, of Father Yusef, and of another, whom he called 'the only man who ever taught me anything' in college days. This man was Father Haddad of the Madrasat Al-Hikmat, the present College de la Sagessse in Beirut."
Barbara Young, in THIS MAN FROM LEBANON, A Study of Kahlil Gibran
