This is so wonderful I just want to swallow its pages whole and die.

This is a collection of Rilke's letters/life lessons to a very young poet who worked up the courage to send him a few samples. The letters are profoundly wise, sincere and loving.

If you are a young poet, you should find a nice couch on which to swoon while reading them.
