Khalil Gibran (/pʒɪˈbrɑːn/; Full Arabic title Gibran Khalil Gibran, sometimes spelled Kahlil;[a] Arabic: جبران خليل جبران / ALA-LC: Jubrān Khalīl Jubrān or Jibrān Khalīl Jibrān) (January 6, 1883 – April 10, 1931) was a Lebanese-American artist, poet, and author of the New York Pen League.
Khalil Gibran was born in the town of Bsharri at the Mount Lebanon Mutasarrifate, Ottoman Empire (north of modern-day Lebanon), to Khalil Gibran and Kamila Gibran(Rahmeh). As a young man Khalil emigrated with his family to the United States, in which he studied art and began his literary career, writing in both English and Arabic. As a political and literary rebel, Gibran is seen in the Arab world. His romantic style was at the heart of a renaissance in contemporary Arabic literature, especially prose poetry, breaking away from the classical school. As a literary hero, he's still celebrated in Lebanon.
He is chiefly known from the English-speaking world because of his 1923 book The Prophet, an early case of inspirational fiction for example a series of philosophical essays written in English Language prose. The book sold well even though having a reception that was critical, gaining popularity in the 1930s and from the 1960s counterculture. Gibran is your next best-selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Laozi.
