A Kahlil Gibran Collection, narrated by Denis Daly
While he is most famous for his didactic fable, The Prophet, the works of Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931) address a wide range of philosophical and social issues. The overriding theme of his narratives is not the religious universalism that he is supposed to represent, but rather the inevitable conflict between human aspirations and the remorseless machinations of fate.
The texts used for these recordings were published between 1911 and 1923.
1. Spirits Rebellious
