Khalil GIBRAN, outstanding figure in the world literature, is the author of one of the texts most read all over the world and being called by some the absolute masterpiece: The Prophet. This work will open the series with a brand new translation from English to French proposing a new light on the universal message in his deep humanism, especially due to the radical standpoint of this translation. It also offers a thorough reflexion of the challenge of this text which was publishes nearly 90 years ago in English.
According to the philosophy of AnimaViva Multilingüe, this publication exists in four languages, including Arab, the natal languish of Khalil Gibran. Will follow quickly two more writings showing, on one hand, Gibran’s great capacity to dive into the soul of our cultures, and on the other, his mastery of literary expression in more than just one field.
