    DescriptionThis is a mini-anthology of Rilke's poetry and prose for both aficionados and newcomers. Combining great passion and gentle care, the poems on love presented here are often not only sensual but explicitly sexual as well. Others reflect perennial themes in Rilke's work - death and life, growth and transformation. The book concludes with Rilke's reflections on wisdom and openness to experience, on grasping the most difficult and turning what is alien into that which we can most trust.
