Jibrān Khalīl Jibrān

Jibrān Khalīl Jibrān (جبران خليل جبران) b.1883-d.1931

Lebanese poet, artist, and philosopher who immigrated to New York near the end of the 18th century. His most famous work is ‘ The Prophet ‘ which has been translated into over forty different languages. An interesting fact about Jibrān was that he wrote most of his poetry and other literary pieces in English rather than his mother language, Arabic.
