The Story of a Prophet


9,90 €
Sensual, passionate, provocative even vindictive, Klabund's prophet is crystallized by a lyricism that is both direct and poetic. The author gives us here an X-ray portrait of Mohammed, between spirituality and humanity: the conquest of Mecca by a man whom Napoleon said had achieved in thirty years what Christianity had taken three centuries to accomplish.
The author
