This book is ripe for culling because of both age and lack of interest. The pages are yellowed and a puff of mustiness hits ones face when closing the book. There are two other books of Gibran’s poetry on the shelf, including one of his most well known, but he is not considered an important American poet. He was most popular during the late sixties and early seventies (which shows in the circulation) but then interest waned.
