Exiled between the cultures and conflicts of the Middle East and the West, painter and poet Kahlil Gibran's life and art retrace the emigrant's passage, searching for home. From the rich spiritual inheritance and material poverty of his childhood in Mount Lebanon to the loss of family in the urban wilderness of America in the 1890s; from Boston's South End tenements to recognition of his talent by settlement house social workers; from his apprenticeships in the creative circles of Boston, Beirut, Paris, and New York to his art and activism for "Greater Syria" and Syrian-Lebanese emigrants; and from his friendships, loves, and partnerships to his emergence as a people's poet, in Arabic and English-Kahlil Gibran crafted an expansive vision of shared humanity treasured in over forty languages. Culminating in his signature work, The Prophet, Gibran's art was to cross divisive boundaries and embrace a borderless citizenship. A romance between cultures, this beautifully illustrated biography illuminates his life and art to convey his passionate, inspiring story to our time. Book jacket.
