Life of a Poet

Life of a Poet

A Biography of Rainer Maria Rilke
By Ralph Freedom

In this outstanding biography, Freedman traces Rilke's extraordinary career by combining detailed accounts of salient episodes from the poet's restless life with an intimate reading of the verse and prose that refract them. 65 halftones.

"What Freedman's book does, and more thoroughly than any of the other biographies, is to retell Rilke's story meticulously and with a welcome attention to the circumambient social and political circumstances." --Michael André Bernstein, New Republic
