I’m embarrassed to attempt a “review” of a work as well-established as this one and one about which my expertise is even more lacking than about most literature. Therefore, I will simply say that in my quest to become immersed in poetry to a greater degree than I have been in recent years (decades?) immersed to an extent I was in younger days, I find Rilke modern, classic, inspirational. “Beauty’s nothing but the start of terror we can hardly bear” is by itself a line worth a whole year’s reading. Next year, though, there’ll be more.
