BOOKS BY KAHLIL GIBRAN

"He is the William Blake of the twentieth century."
AUGUSTE RODIN.



THE MADMAN (1918)

[With three original drawings by the author.]

"His is an irresistible vigor and clarity of thought and feeling, together with a power of simple picturing, which makes it unforgettable. It is the voice and genius of the Arabic people."—The New York Evening Post.

"Never have I read anything like it, never has a little book brought me so deep and passionate a pleasure. He has breathed the spirit of the East on our cold and indifferent souls; and I, for one, feel almost as if I had been suffocated by the breath of an intense beauty."—The Liberator.

TWENTY DRAWINGS (1919)

[With an Introductory Essay by Alice Raphael.]

"It is Rodin that comes instantly to mind as a comparison. He has sensed a relation between man and the universe, and, with his astounding technique, is able to make us sense it too. Mr. Knopf is entitled to our gratitude."—Detroit Journal.
