The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran

book 65:  The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran

I guess I would best call The Prophet a semi-fictional parable broken into chapters on different life/ spiritual subjects, with an introductory and closing story, all written in prose/ poetry.  The last section, The Farewell, felt a bit melodramatic and verbose, but otherwise my reaction to this classic was "this is very beautiful and wise".  I was frequently moved to tears.  I think everyone could glean some wisdom from this book
