First published in 1923, The Prophet is a collection of twenty-six poetic fables that centre around the prophet Al Mustafa, who, boarding a boat in the city of Orphalese, where he has lived for many years, prepares to sail home.

On the voyage Al Mustafa is approached by a group of travellers, with whom he discusses deep topics – love, friendship, passion, pain, religion – and The Prophet becomes a manual and spiritual guide.

This edition features the original illustrations prepared by the author, as well as an introduction by Dr Daniele Nunziata, which introduces the great work for a new generation.
