Divided into twenty-eight chapters covering sprawling topics such as love, marriage, children and friendship, The Prophet forms a collection of poetic essays that are philosophical, spiritual and inspirational. The book was an instant bestseller on publication in 1923 and since then has been translated into more than 50 languages.
