An enduring and moving commentary on the human condition since its publication in 1923, Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet has been adapted as a graphic novel by award-winning illustrator Pete Katz. In this edition, Gibran’s classic poem is transformed into a narrative that shows how the words of the prophet Al Mustafa can help modern readers overcome personal struggles. Excerpts from Gibran’s original work are incorporated into full-color scenes so that readers can gain a deeper appreciation for one of the most popular books of the twentieth century.
