      • bioText: Kahlil Gibran was born in 1883 in Lebanon and died in New York in 1931. His family emigrated to the United States in 1895. In his early teens, the artistry of Gibran's drawings caught the eye of his teachers and he was introduced to the avant-garde Boston artist, photographer, and publisher Fred Holland Day, who encouraged and supported Gibran in his creative endeavors. A publisher used some of Gibran's drawings for book covers in 1898, and Gibran held his first art exhibition in 1904 in Boston. In 1908, Gibran went to study art with Auguste Rodin in Paris for two years, and he later studied art in Boston. While most of Gibran's early writing was in Arabic, most of his work published after 1918 was in English. Gibran's best-known work is The Prophet, a book composed of 28 poetic essays.
        Becky Ann Baker is a well-regarded TV, film, and theater actress and has recording numerous listening library titles.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Published in 1923, THE PROPHET is the narrative of Almustafa, a man preparing to return to the island of his birth after 12 years away. Before he departs, the people of his adopted city ask him to reflect on ideas such as love, the law, freedom, and self-knowledge. His answers are poetic and wise--the style is closer to the Gospels than to today's crop of inspirational titles--and their beauty is enhanced by the pitch-perfect narration of Paul Sparer. Sparer has a magnificent voice that can't help but evoke Orson Welles. Whatever your religious bent, this recording, first released in 1985, is well worth a listen. D.B.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: In his reading of THE PROPHET, narrator Paul Sparer takes on the tone and pace of the wise teacher who is the centerpiece of Gibran's famous work. Sparer's low, patient voice evokes images of fireside talks that stretch long into the night, despite the fact that the book itself is light on physical description. With Sparer's voice as a vehicle, the Prophet's words ring all the more true. His voice recalls the tenderness of a parent speaking to a child, the humor of a friend's confidence and camaraderie, and the patience of one who has seen and understands the world and who seeks to impart wisdom to those in search of enlightenment. The words themselves are inspiring, and their power is enhanced by Sparer's attentive and careful treatment. A.A. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
