A poetic review of Kahlil Gibran

From FIRST THINGS: A Journal of Religion, Culture, and Public Life
On the Recent Publication of Kahlil Gibran’s Collected Works
by Alan Jacobs (c) 2007 First Things (November 2007).

One very small extract:
So again I turn and I say to you,
Pass by the Collected Works of Kahlil Gibran,
Touch it not nor gaze upon it,
But go about your ways in peace of heart and with thanksgiving.
