This is why I need a subscription to First Things

From a review of the mystic, Kahlil Gibran:

In the twenty-third year of the twentieth century,
Alfred A. Knopf published The Prophet,
Written by this Kahlil Gibran,
And lo, the copies of it that have been bought
Would fill the granaries and storehouses of Lebanon,
From whence the Author came to this country as a child.
Even now, these many decades later,
In the great marketplace of Amazon,
The sales rank of The Prophet is high,
Higher at this moment than any of my books has ever been,
Except one of them, once, fleetingly,
And at that thought I gnash my teeth
And once more fling the Book to the Earth.


To these who loved their Orient, their Persian Araby
(For in England and America those two lands seemed one),
Gibran came with a double portion, yea a triple,
He poured it out without stint
And oft, it seems, without editing.
