The Poems of Rainer Maria Rilke - Rainer Maria Rilke - A Short Summary and Review


A short summary of The Poems of Rainer Maria Rilke:

A collection of mystical poems from the great Prague poet.

My favorite Rainer Maria Rilke quote from the book:

"...but Art alone gives to the age its spiritual physiognomy, its ultimate and lasting expression."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

What captivates you?

Where do you go when your spirit needs peace?

My review of the Poems of Rainer Maria Rilke:

So peaceful.

So bright.

So quotable.
