KIRKUS REVIEW

Prose, prose-poems and parables by this well-known son of the Middle East don with his usual shadowed mysticism. Love and Hate, Joy and Sorrow, Youth and Age, Tears Laughter, these are the commonplace themes of this perpetual adolescent. The pseudo-Bical, pseudo- Blakeian style in which they are handled adds little. Kahlil Gibran has a ways commanded a certain cultist following, and this is for them-whoever they may be.
