    I’ve had different reactions to various incarnations of the classic book THE PROPHET. The book itself, I was lukewarm about, because it seemed that for every thought that was clever or insightful, there was another that seemed pompous and full of mumbo jumbo. However, the 2016 animated version of the story absolutely destroyed me—and I very rarely have emotional reactions to movies. I can’t even listen to the soundtrack without losing it.

The book itself, I was lukewarm about, because it seemed that for every thought that was clever or insightful, there was another that seemed pompous and full of mumbo jumbo. However, the 2016 animated version of the story absolutely destroyed me—and I very rarely have emotional reactions to movies. I can’t even listen to the soundtrack without losing it. This graphic novel take on THE PROPHET seems, for me at least, to strike an ideal balance between words and imagery. The artwork is absolutely stunning. The illustrations are bordered by Gibran’s poetic words in a way that makes nearly every page appear as wall-ready art. As THE PROPHET is a book about life’s questions large and small, perhaps it is fitting that the original text is framed with an original story of a middle-aged woman struggling with the serious illness of a parent. This struck me as something both meaningful and profoundly real; an example of the times in life when we wrestle with some of the biggest questions we can ask about ourselves and our loved ones, and when we might be attracted to a book such as THE PROPHET. This isn’t to say that the presentation immediately erases the original text’s pretensions and silliness. Gibran’s meditation on eating makes me roll my eyes so far back in my head they almost stick there. It’s basically a poetic, early-20th-century version of "Defensive Omnivore Bingo." That said, the section boasts stunning artwork of a cow and a ram, and for those wont to ink themselves, it would make a fantastic tattoo. Indeed, there are numerous gorgeous and meaningful images of animals throughout this book. The loving bond between humans and animal companions are used to illustrate the ideas of Giving, Joy & Sorrow, and Beauty. A vibrant bird escapes a small cage in a representation of Freedom. I could see these images as tattoos of significance to someone who has a strong sense of compassion for other creatures.

    "The Prophet" by Kahlil Gibran is considered a classic and since I owe a poster of the 100 ultimate books I wanted to give this classic a try. Luckily, I decided on this pretty recently released Graphic Novel by Pete Katz (it kind of took me by surprise to read the thank you note dedicated to the front line workers of the coronavirus pandemic). Pete Katz added a new story line to "The Prophet": A woman called Al is taking care of her sick father who lies unconscious in the hospital.

Pete Katz added a new story line to "The Prophet": A woman called Al is taking care of her sick father who lies unconscious in the hospital. Al receives "The Prophet" from a friend and reads it while going through this difficult in her life. For me personally, this was big plus since I found it hart to connect to the original poetry text of "The Prophet". The original texts read like passages from the Bible. As an atheist I don't really read the Bible and this kind of expression is foreign to me, so it was difficult for me to build a connection to these passages. So thank you Al for making it easier for me :-) My favorite part: "What shall I say of these save that they too stand in the sunlight, but with their backs to the sun? They see only they shadows, and their shadows are their laws. And what is the sun to them but a caster of shadows?"

    Pete Katz' adaptation of Gibran's The Prophet is absolutely stunning. This classic poem is newly brought to life in the form of beautiful illustrations told alongside of a modern narrative that works to provide an interpretation of Gibran's poetry. I am definitely going to be gifting this version of the text to at least a couple of people. I can't get over how beautiful it was. Such a lovely, moving piece of work.

    O que se pode dizer de um livro que só descreve aquilo que já sabemos? Genial! E a história leve de alguém no quotidiano, consegue criar o ritmo e atualidade. Vale mesmo a pena guardar na mesinha de cabeceira.
