Description de l'ouvrage

5 août 1997 Wordsworth Classics of World Literature

The Prophet, an international besteller and translated into over fifty languages, is the best-known and best-loved of Kahil Gibran's many spiritual and religious writings. Inspired largely by the beauty and timelessness of nature, The Prophet, arrayed as twentysix prose poetry essays, speaks of love and marriage, joy and sorrow, reason and passion, beauty and death, and conveys the yearning for a Unity of Being that can only be achieved through love.

These qualities made The Prophet the iconic book of the 1960s counter-culture, which embraced love and spirituality. Illustrated with his own enchanting and mystical drawings, The Prophet is a masterpiece, the most famous work of religious fiction of the Twentieth Century, and a wonderful companion for anybody embarking on their own spiritual journey.

Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"His power came from some great reservoir of spiritual life, else it could not have been so universal and so potent, but the majesty and beauty of the language with which he clothed it were all his own" (Claude Bragdon)

"It's packed full of poems and sonnets and words of wisdom. Inspirational stuff" (Tamzin Outhwaite Daily Express)

"It was all the rage in the 60s, when it was almost like a bible to me. To any question, there was always a simple answer" (Cynthia Lennon Mail on Sunday)

"A book that changed me ... was The Prophet by Khalil Gibran, which has passages about every section of life. My parents gave me a copy when I left home; it's a bit of a family Bible" (Julia Bradbury Independent on Sunday) --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Relié .

Quatrième de couverture

Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself.

But if you love and must needs have desires,

let these be your desires:

To melt and be like a running brook that sings

its melody to the night.

To know the pain of too much tenderness.

To be wounded by your own understanding

of love;

And to bleed willingly and joyfully.

To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give

thanks for another day of loving;

To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's

ecstasy;

To return home at eventide with gratitude;

And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved

in you heart and a song of praise upon your lips.

"Le Prophète" est un de ces petits livres qui nous accompagnent pendant toute une vie. Le chapitre qui nous ne parle pas aujourd'hui, nous parlera un autre jour, quand nous serons prêts...
"Le Prophète" parle des chapitres importants de notre vie: l'amour, le mariage, les enfants, la mort, le travail, la maison, la religion... Et il en parle avec justesse et poésie. Je ne m'en lasse pas.

je l'ai offert à mon mari, il était ravi. Rien de plus à dire. Si ce n'est que je voudrais le lire en français, que je l'ai commandé et qu'il n"était plus en stock. J'attends donc et ainsi je pourrais donner mon sentiment lorsque je l'aurai lu.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Deeper than you can imagine 18 janvier 2006
Par L. Power - Publié sur Amazon.com

A prophet has waited twelve years in a coastal town for the ship that will bear him back to his homeland, which he misses.

Why he is there, why he is waiting, how he knows what he knows, and who he is is a mystery. As he departs the townspeople gather to wish him well. A local seeress who knows him best asks him to share his wisdom so that it will endure for generations to come.

So, he reveals his wisdom on love, birth, marriage, children, pain, talking, pleasure, death any so much more.

It is a profound work, and here is his advice on marriage so you may judge for yourself:

You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore.
You shall be together when white wings of death scatter your days.

Aye, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,

And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
Love one another but make not a bond of love:

Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.

Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,

Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.
Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.

For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together, yet not too near together:

For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.

Its not a little similar to the Tao Te Ching: A New English Version (Perennial Classics)where a border guard recognises Lao Tzu, and asks him to share his wisdom as he goes into exile. Written 2,500 years ago, and one of the most translated books in the world. The Tao contains many principles you can use in your everyday life, and if you're not thinking in ego based ways, your wisdom based thinking opens up..

If you like one book, you will love the other, so I recommend both. For the Tao, I recommend the Stephen Mitchell version. Hope this was useful.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Insightful Prose 7 mai 2000
Par Mary Seale - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I first became aware of Kahlil Gibran when I read a poem of his that was on the menu at my favorite Lebanese restaurant. Ever since then, I have sought out his books. The Prophet is my favorite. Several of the "poems" or passages are fully relevant to parts of my life. The book makes one feel good and inspired to do good for others. There is barely an aspect on life that the poems do not touch on-love, marriage, death and all of our own insecurities and doubts about people and life. This would be a good book to give to a friend who is going through a rough time, or just has unanswered questions at a certain point in their lives. The writing is lucid, insightful, and will be relevant for as long as time goes on.The drawings add to an already great work. At my favorite Lebanese restaurant, I not only found good food-I thankfully found Kahlil Gibran.

Par Kathy Adams - Publié sur Amazon.com

Gibran gets right down to the bedrock of what it is all about. He was obviously a very enlightened man, and The Prophet is so completely, psychologically and spiritually healthy. Anyone who would not consider this work a standard for healthy living, is simply simple-minded. This book should be offered to all high school students as a guide in gaining perspective on what is really important in life. I first read The Prophet about 10 years ago, and I typically read it about once a year, just to remind myself. However, I gave my copy to my son who showed signs of being "at risk" at age 17. I believe the book had a significant, positive impact on him, and he is now 20 and living a very responsible and balanced life. After my son had read this book, I found him on the telephone one evening reading passages to a friend. It made him think, and any time you can get a teenager to think, it's a very good thing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Inspirationally intelligent, spiritual and healing!!! 19 novembre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com

Three years ago, my life was in the midst of extreme chaos and denial. Then 29 years-old, I had flown my eight-year old daughter to seek a much needed second opinion concerning her newly diagnosed brain tumor half-way across the US. While staying at The Ronald McDonald House in Houston, a place of housing for patients with special medical needs in the Houston area, I stumbled across "The Prophet" in the House's library. I read the entire book that night as my child slept, and it became evident that on some mystical level, I was meant to read Kalil's words of wisdom concerning pain, suffering and love. The book as also helped me to come to terms with my child's passing from this life onto the next and has been one of my inspirational tools in dealing with death, separation and acceptance.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Simple Wisdom 25 juin 2000
Par Bruce Kendall - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is one of the first (literary) books I recall reading. My mother kept a collection of Gibran's works that she often read. I was curious to see what attracted her, so I looked into them too ( I was either eight or nine at the time). I believe that was my first taste of spirituality and seemed at the time more relevant than what I was being force-fed by nuns in catechism class. Rereading Gibran now, I'm struck by the notion that Hesse must have been aware of these texts before he wrote Siddhartha. They contain many of the same themes: No one else can guide you on your path. You must select your own course. Preachers and prophets are a dime a dozen. True wisdom comes from within.
The prophet's teaching on love is particularly relevant to me at this stage of my life:
"For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning. Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun, So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth. Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself. He threshes you to make you naked. He sifts you to free you from your husks. He grinds you to whiteness. He kneads you until you are pliant; And then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God's sacred feast."
Look into these books. They may appear simplistic to the jaundiced eye, but they may also provide the inspiration you need to see you through life's travails.
