Dr. Kheirallah has also contributed a biographical introduction, which reveals some little-known facts of the poet's life and gives the Western reader some notion of how he is regarded in his native Syria [sic].
No Gibran work would be complete without a selection of his poetically mystical drawings. These reproduced here were prepared especially for this edition of The Procession.
