Meet the Author

Kahlil Gibran was born in 1883 in Lebanon and died in New York in 1931. His family emigrated to the United States in 1895. In his early teens, the artistry of Gibran's drawings caught the eye of his teachers and he was introduced to the avant-garde Boston artist, photographer, and publisher Fred Holland Day, who encouraged and supported Gibran in his creative endeavors. A publisher used some of Gibran's drawings for book covers in 1898, and Gibran held his first art exhibition in 1904 in Boston. In 1908, Gibran went to study art with Auguste Rodin in Paris for two years. He later studied art in Boston. While most of Gibran's early writing was in Arabic, most of his work published after 1918 was in English. Gibran's best-known work is The Prophet, a book composed of 26 poetic essays.

Kahlil Gibran nació en el Líbano en 1883 y murió en Nueva York en 1931. Su familia migró a los Estados Unidos en 1895. En su juventud, los dibujos de Gibran llamaron la atención de sus profesores y, entonces, fue introducido al artista, fotógrafo y editor vanguardista de Boston, Fred Holland Day, quien incentivó y apoyó los proyectos creativos de Gibran. Un editor utilizó algunos de los dibujos de Gibran para las portadas de libros en 1898 y Gibran inauguró su primera exhibición de arte en 1904 en Boston. Gibran estudió arte con Auguste Rodin en Paris durante dos años. Luego, estudió arte en Boston. Aunque la mayoría de los primeros escritos de Gibran están en árabe, la mayoría de su obra publicada después de 1918 está en ingles. La obra más conocida de Gibran es El profeta, un libro compuesto por veintiséis ensayos poéticos.
