i was gripped by his letters to Lou Salome-Andreas
amazing, sad, tragic, beautiful, clever...

I've been reading Rilke almost as an avocation for two+ years and find him an ultimate poet of subtety and emotional analysis. Possibly the best poet of his era.

How can I keep my soul in me, so that
It doesn't touch your soul? How can I raise
It high enough, past you, to other things?
I would like to shelter it, among remote
Lost objects, in some dark and silent place
That doesn't resonate when your depths resound. {excerpt and great eg of Rilke}
