Shortly before his death on April 10,1931, Kahlil Gibran completed this book. In these beautiful parables and drawings are crystallized his whole life's message-a message that has consoled and inspired thousands of readers since its publication.

These are fifty or more of these tales of The Wanderer, each one woven of the very fabric of Eastern thought and phraseology. Nothing of the West is here. It is as though, with his life drawing to its close, his native mood and atmosphere occupied the poet's being, even as it did his constant thought and conversation. For more and more he talked of his childhood and his youth, of his mother, of Father Yusef and of another, whom he called 'the only man who ever taught me anything' in college days.This man was Father Haddad of the Madrasat Al-Hikmat, the present College de la Sagesse in Beirut.
