Read in February, 2006

I'd read a couple of Rilke's poems before picking up this book. I must admit that I skimmed over much of Bly's commentary because I was not in the mood to analyze the poetry. There were numerous poems that caught my attention right away. Most of them, however, didn't really resonate with me. I don't know if it had something to do with the translation, but I kept getting the feeling that the poem was supposed to be profound, but I just didn't see it. I guess I'll chalk it up to getting lost in translation!
