The circulation of these two books are a testament to the continued popularity of Gibran’s books of advice and myth delivered through poetry. And that popularity is a testament to people’s desire to be preached to in attractive language. Gibran’s poetry isn’t much to celebrate but he does provide some worthy advice, especially in The Prophet, his most popular work. As long as people are checking these out, keep them on the shelf.
