This book isn’t really what I thought it would be. It is literally pictures of 97 pages of a typed manuscript or journal by Princess Marie about her encounters with Rilke towards the end of his life. Not the best presentation even with the pictures. 3/5

The Poet and the Princess

I really liked the history and the story of the Princess. The book was well written and very informative. The poetry was incorporated into the story was well done.
