  5. This is one of my favorite books So incredibly insightful about life in general And a very fast read I ve had a copy for over 30 years, and I get something new out of it every time I read it Make SURE you buy the one translated by M.D Herter Norton I ve come to realize that the translation of a book is as big an art form as the writing of the book itself I mistakenly bought a copy for a friend by a different translator, and it was horrible The language was so simplistic, so pedantic, that much o [...]


  6. but I ll try This is Rilke at his best, sympathetic, tender, stunning and awe inspiring Throw away your new age psychobabble dip into this little beauty instead, it s packed full of gems of wisdom, and should be required reading for any would be writer, poet and human being Even on first reading, it catches the heart, and subsequent readings just allow one deeper access to the poetry inherent in every word If you want to blow your mind, read this
