"Khalil Gibran: Local Boy Made Good": Guest Posting on Mike Chasar's "Poetry & Popular Culture"


Check it out: "Khalil Gibran: Local Boy Made Good" at Mike Chasar's "Poetry & Popular Culture" Blog.

Thanks to Mike for soliciting the piece, and to my Dad, for his mythopoesis and constant support. Mama Boulos, you're never forgotten.

Here's how Chasar prefaces the piece:
Poetry & Popular Culture correspondent Phil Metres reflects on the life and times of Lebanese poet Khalil Gibran, author of what's become the best-selling single volume of poetry in U.S. history. Of all the things Gibran was—a man, a legend, a local-boy-made-good, a salve for the spiritual homelessness of immigrant Arab Americans—he was also a guest at the Brooklyn Heights home of Metres's great- grandparents in 1927. Read on to find the full text of Gibran's thank-you letter to the Boulos family—and to discover the nation of prophets that The Prophet left in its wake.
