American artist, poet, and writer.

Born in the town of Bsharri in modern-day Lebanon (then part of Ottoman Mount Lebanon), as a young man he emigrated with his family to the United States where he studied art and began his literary career. In the Arab world, 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, breaking away from the classical school. In Lebanon, he is still celebrated as a literary hero.

Kahlil Gibran

The Lebanese-American artist, poet, and author Kahlil Gibran (1883–1931) combined beauty and spirituality in philosophy, and his writings remain a staple of wedding and graduation rituals.

His first and best-known work, The Prophet, achieved a lasting popularity in the 1960s as a countercultural guide; available in 40 languages, it has never gone out of print.
