Dengan sensitivitasnya yang luar biasa, Kahlil Gibran merajut sebuah kisah cinta tentang sepasang kekasih yang indah dan menggelora. Namun, cinta mereka bukanlah tanpa halangan. Tradisi, tabu, politik, dan ketidakadilan menjadi penghalang bagi keduanya untuk bersatu.

Sederhana, tetapi penuh makna. Itulah yang membuat karya Gibran begitu dekat di hati pembacanya. Diterjemahkan secara langsung oleh Sapardi Djoko Damono, penyair legendaris Indonesia, menjadikan napas liris dan puitis di dalam buku ini tetap semakin terasa keindahannya.

Inilah salah satu kisah cinta paling megah dan paling dikenal sepanjang masa, yang sering disandingkan bersama Romeo & Juliet karya William Shakespeare.

[Mizan, Bentang Pustaka, Novel, Sastra, Klasik, Indonesia]

The God separated a spirit from Himself and fashioned it into Beauty. He showered upon her all the blessings of gracefulness and kindness. He gave her the cup of happiness and said, "Drink not from this cup unless you forget the past and the future, for happiness is naught but the moment." And He also gave her a cup of sorrow and said, "Drink from this cup and you will understand the meaning of the fleeting instants of the joy of life, for sorrow ever abounds."

And the God bestowed upon her a love that would desert he forever upon her first sigh of earthly satisfaction, and a sweetness that would vanish with her first awareness of flattery.

And He gave her wisdom from heaven to lead to the all-righteous path, and placed in the depth of her heart and eye that sees the unseen, and created in he an affection and goodness toward all things. He dressed her with raiment of hopes spun by the angels of heaven from the sinews of the rainbow. And He cloaked her in the shadow of confusion, which is the dawn of life and light.

Then the God took consuming fire from the furnace of anger, and searing wind from the desert of ignorance, and sharp- cutting sands from the shore of selfishness, and coarse earth from under the feet of ages, and combined them all and fashioned Man. He gave to Man a blind power that rages and drives him into a madness which extinguishes only before gratification of desire, and placed life in him which is the specter of death.

And the god laughed and cried. He felt an overwhelming love and pity for Man, and sheltered him beneath His guidance.
