Description

An inspirational collection of love letters from the most emotive writer of the 20th century

Kahlil Gibran and May Ziadah knew one another solely from the letters they exchanged and from a deep admiration for each other's work. Yet their correspondence endured a lifetime, as did their love.

This collection of letters, the first ever to appear in English, reveals the eloquence and beauty of Gibran's writing in a form and style that is both profoundly personal and emotionally evocative. Illustrated throughout with Gibran's ink sketches and fascinating photographs of his original letters, this exquisite gift edition presents a moving insight into the writer behind The Prophet, the bestselling book of the twentieth century.
