    Gibran s fame rests upon THE PROPHET it is therefore refreshing to have exerpts from other works THE MADMAN and THE WANDERER at hand His poetic style may not be to everyone s taste where some find deep wisdom in his writings, others dismiss it as airy fairy babbling I love the allusiveness, the rich imagery and associations.Gibran is geliefd vir DIE PROFEET die ander twee werke waarvan uittreksels hier verskaf word, is soortgelyk, hoewel veel minder bekend Sy ryk beeldspraak spreek tot m Gibran s fame rests upon THE PROPHET it is therefore refreshing to have exerpts from other works THE MADMAN and THE WANDERER at hand His poetic style may not be to everyone s taste where some find deep wisdom in his writings, others dismiss it as airy fairy babbling I love the allusiveness, the rich imagery and associations.Gibran is geliefd vir DIE PROFEET die ander twee werke waarvan uittreksels hier verskaf word, is soortgelyk, hoewel veel minder bekend Sy ryk beeldspraak spreek tot my, hoewl nie almal van sy idees hou nie Sommige sienings, soos di oor koop en verkoop in DIE PROFEET, bly steeds relevant vir vandag se verbruikersamelewing

    Hmmm, this type of philosophical religious writing is just not for me I don t enjoy the symbolism, the allusion and the piety.However I understand that others find this writing amazing and life changing I really only read this small book because it is a Penguin 60, and I have it in my shelf as a part of at series.On this basis, like other books that aren t in my genres of interest, I won t put a star rating on.

    The prophet started out great but after a while honestly got tedious to read Instead of inspiring admiration for the prophet, it displayed the character as subtly vain, too proud of gathering the knowledge that he has gained Some of his other works were quite plain too The metaphors would be beautiful if they didnt seem so forced occurring in ever line or two.

    A swirling maelstrom of profundity Sometimes a bit too absurdly philosophical to handle but also contains some sharply insightful life advice.

    Penguin books has published this pamphlet An abridged version, which means the tree has to be cut down to fit the sense of crippled men Kahlil Gibran s books are one of the beauties of our planet But if you ask me whether to read this book pamphlet or not, I will say read The Prophet, read The Madman, read The Wanderer, not this pamphlet which is not complete at least.

    I read Finnish edition of The Wanderer 1976 There was no Prophet or Madman Capturing little stories, which gave plenty to think of.
