Overview

"The Madman His Parables and Poems" by Kahlil Gibran is the renowned Lebanese-American, writer, philosopher, poet and artist's first book published in English. "The Madman," is a slim volume of aphorisms and parables written in biblical cadence somewhere between poetry and prose.

Much of Gibran's writings deal with Christianity, especially on the topic of spiritual love. But his mysticism is a convergence of several different influences: Christianity, Islam, Sufism, Hinduism and Theosophy.

Gibran is regarded as a literary and political rebel. His Romantic style was at the heart of a renaissance in modern Arabic literature, especially prose poetry. In the Arab world, Gibran is regarded as a literary and political rebel.

This is a very short E-book of approximately 8,000  words and approximately 26+ pages at 300 words per page.

NOTE: This book has been scanned then OCR (Optical Character Recognition) has been applied to turn the scanned page images back into editable text. Then every effort has been made to correct typos, spelling, and to eliminate stray marks picked up by the OCR program. The original and/or extra period images, if any, were then placed in the appropriate place and, finally, the file was formatted for the e-book criteria of the site. This means that the text CAN be re-sized, searches performed, & bookmarks added, unlike some other e-books that are only scanned---errors, stray marks, and all.

We have added an Interactive Table of Contents & an Interactive List of Illustrations if any were present in the original. This means that the reader can click on the links in the Table of Contents or the List of Illustrations & be instantly transported to that chapter or illustration.
