Reviews - What do our customers think?
Arrogance and neglect in translation  May 12, 2008
Before I purchased this book I would like to have known that the translator was not up to the task. El Profeta/the Prophet (Alba) is a translation of Kahil (Jalil) Gibrán's wonderful book The Prophet. The original is not under review here but the translation. The quality of the translation, sometimes reasonable, is often not good:
Gibran often repeats a phrase and the translator has deemed it necessary to change this by changing the language for the repeat, thus disturbing the rhythm and the simplicity (Say not... Say not ... Say rather becomes No digías... Tampoco digías... Decid, sin embargo...).
Sometimes words are not even understood - longing is translated as something to do with a long time (longing equals long). This is in De las casas - ...nor shelter your longing becomes por mucho tiempo.
On one occasion a whole paragraph of the original is omitted in the translation (In De la razón y de la pasión).
Plural words (of the days and the nights) are translated in the singular (del día y de la noche); (the songs and the silences of night) becomes (la música y el silencio de la noche).
'That which you have always known in thought' is translated as 'lo que ya sabías desde un principio.'
'Dreams' are translated as 'fantasía'.
In De la Alegría y de la tristeza, Joy and Sorrow are described in the original English as 'inseperable'. Mr. Cruz Martínez has translated this with 'insuperables'.
The book is peppered with triple asterisks to divide each section into subsections. Why? those subdivisions are not in the original. And the pictures are in the wrong places.
Why all this? Why treat such a wonderful book with such arrogance and superficiality? On the back of the book is written: ... las obras, con frecuencia maltradas, de Jalil Gibrán. ...and now again.
Prosa Poetica  Aug 8, 2002
No es solo mi favorito sino tambien uno de los mas bellos libros que he leido hasta ahora,Kahlil Gibran con magnifica destreza y una sensibilidad incomparables sabe llegar a la escencia de la sabiduria;el corazon.
Will Remain With You Forever!  Mar 17, 1999
I was fortunate to read Dr. Carlos Seguin's translation (Peru). He added a chapter to his Spanish language translation: About the Good Bye. He said there is no real good bye, like the river that passes through... its water remains on the land or the trees it touches. In the same way, this book and its wonderful teaching will never leave you.. they will remain with you and be part of your life. You will never say good bye to The Prophet, his teachings will be with you forever.
