Kahlil Gibran
1883-1931 (Age at death: 48 approx.)

Khalil Gibran (born Gibran Khalil Gibran bin Mikhā'īl bin Sa'ad; Arabic جبران خليل جبران بن �...يکائيل بن سعد, January 6, 1883 - April 10, 1931[citation needed]) also known as Kahlil Gibran, was a Lebanese American artist, poet, and writer. Born in the town of Bsharri in modern-day Lebanon (then part of the Ottoman Mount Lebanon mutasarrifate), as a young man he emigrated with his family to the United States where he studied art and began his literary career. He is chiefly known for his 1923 book The Prophet, a series of philosophical essays written in English prose. An early example of Inspirational fiction, the book sold well despite a cool critical reception, and became extremely popular in the 1960s counterculture.
