This is great for anyone who's interested in translation or Rilke, and good for people who like poetry. Gass gets a little carried away sometimes with very beautiful but unnecessary language, and parts of this were frustrating because they were so abstract and poet-y, but overall I'm glad I read it, and I learned a lot.
