Kahlil Gibran is one of the best-selling poets of all time, behind Shakespeare and Lao Tzu, the founder of Taoism. His book "The Prophet," first published in 1923, has sold over 100 million copies. "He helped present an appealing mystical idea of the wisdom of the East. He was someone who helped humanize and popularize Eastern thought," says literary critic Leisl Schillinger.
