I felt this got stronger as it went along. I think his insights about love are incredible, but the prose seems a little uneven to me. Poetic, yes, but I expected MUCH more from Rilke, undoubtedly one of the best poets of the 20th C. The moments of beauty are very beautiful, but everything seems more diffuse because it is spread out.
