Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...this solid literary history is recommended for all libraries." Choice

"In the flood of secondary literature on Rilke, an essential book comes along now and then. Because of its general clarity of arguments, its evidence of vast parallel reading (and viewing), the the keeness of its perceptions and arguments, and - best of all- the novelty of its insight, Professor Ryan's entry in the Cambridge Studies in German must be regarded as a major event." George C. Schoolfield, Germanic Notes and Reviews

"...an exemplary piece of scholarly writing...full of fascinating new finds...destined to change the way we think about the poet and his work." Modern Language Quarterly
