Summary

“Work is love made visible.” (Khalil Gibran)

Filled with wisdom, written in simple, poetic language, The Prophet is a book for all ages, which remains amazingly relevant to our times. This audiobook, narrated by Michael Kramer and Kate Reading, contains two full versions of The Prophet: Part One, with music by Stefan Frankenberger. Part Two, with our voices only.

After living in the city of Orphalese for 12 years, a prophet is about to board a ship which will carry him home. He is stopped by a seeress and the people of the city, who ask him for his insights into life.

The book is divided into chapters dealing with love, marriage, children, giving, eating and drinking, work, joy and sorrow, houses, clothes, buying and selling, crime and punishment, laws, freedom, reason and passion, pain, self-knowledge, teaching, friendship, talking, time, good and evil, prayer, pleasure, beauty, religion, and death.

The Prophet is a book of prose poetry written by Khalil Gibran. Originally published in 1923, it is now in the public domain. The Prophet has been translated into over 100 different languages, making it one of the most translated books in history, and it has never been out of print.

Critic reviews

Listening to this masterful narration by Kate Reading and Michael Kramer is a solid choice for those wanting to enjoy Lebanese-American poet Kahlil Gibran's prose. The narrators share his wisdom for the ages in beautifully read phrases. Exhortations on marriage, justice, family, and politics are delivered as memorable aphorisms. In a deep baritone, Kramer takes on the words of the prophet from whom people ask advice. His authoritative and confident performance is balanced by Kate Reading's tender delivery of the chapters she reads. Listeners are folded into her firm yet loving maternal embrace. The production has two options for listening: one with musical interludes and one without. M.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2020]
