Summary

The Madman: His Parables and Poems by Kahlil Gibran

Narrated by Denis Daly 

Many iconic spiritual figures have been accused of madness. Gibran's madman describes himself as one who has found "both the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us." 

Unlike their biblical precursors, his parables espouse the importance of personal spiritual insight rather than moral rectitude. In Gibran's view, sin and virtue, mercy and justice, and sanity and madness are all sides of the one coin - one cannot exist without its opposite.
