Letters to a Young Poet
by Rainer Maria Rilke


Overview - Every page is stamped with Rilke's characteristic grace, and the book is free of the breathless effect that occasionally mars his poetry.

Those looking for an alluring image of the solitary artist--and for an astonishing quotient of wisdom--will find both in Letters to a Young Poet.  Read more...
