really liked it
bookshelves: previously-read, university, poetry

There are some books for which reviews are pointless. These books, instead of the reader selecting them from the shelf and listening to them as they unfold along their merry or unmerry way as they have before and always will, select the reader, at the right time, in the right place, like an old or a new friend who shows up just as the reader is on the verge of losing all hope and faith, pinned underneath the great questions of our times and battling their own monsters which threaten to swallow them whole.

Félix works for me

Angie It's a great book. Thin too! Also, I do believe you can find whole translations of the work online but they're not the best translations.

Thanks for commenting Larry. :)

Ruslan If you like Rilke you will love this book!
