HarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics.

‘Let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.’

A prophet waits to board a ship after 12 years away from his homeland. His journey is interrupted by a group of people who ask him to impart his wisdom before he leaves forever. What follows are 26 short chapters on everything from love, marriage and children, to freedom, reason, talking, time and death.

A guide to life and the human condition, this lyrical work of prose poetry has entranced readers for nearly 100 years. Described by many as the first self-help book, The Prophet was an instant bestseller when it was published in 1923, and is one of the most translated works in history.
