Delicately & Nobly Written ....

This book, which is delicately and nobly written, radiates with beauty, elegance and with all due love and tenderness that should be there when writing about a poet like Rilke.

If you love Rilke . . .

What did you love best about In the Company of Rilke?

The author has a wonderful command of the poet's work and a great voice. You are swept away by both. I have a much better sense of Rilke after this.
