Read in January, 2008

Not all the tales are so wildly profound, but there are a few true gems in there. It is a very old book, with an old sense of language. But Rilke, who has written two or three of my most favorite poems in the world, tells stories that resonate a piety (relationship with, love of, and faith in God) that I myself feel. It is not religious at all, which is quite astounding for that time period, I think. It is beautiful, and it is told (as he says many times) for the children.
