This is a very handsome book with a wide variety of Rilke's writings; prose and poetry. As with most large volumes of poetry by one master, you either love Rilke or you don't. I do. I like the melding of human longings and musings with images of nature. I can tolerate his religious ruminations because I appreciate his humanity, he never comes off as pious but to me he seems a somewhat bewildered worshipper. In these things I can relate. A deep love and sense of nature and God as seperate and intertwined, a longing for love in truth, a dark and groping quest for intimacy at all levels, like the tree growing ever upward, ever inward, ever earthbound.
