Is Kahlil Gibran's work still protected by copyright laws in the US?

I’m thinking specifically of The Prophet, written in 1923 as far as I can tell.

  1. any published work is copyrighted. even after the 95 yrs–if you used any of the writing from his work, you would still have to give him credit for it.

  2. The link below will help, although it appears the main questions are:
    a) was The Prophet originally published only in the US, or also abroad?
    b) did the original publication have a copyright notice?
    As you will notice, if it had been published a year earlier (1922), the laws would be different.
