Original Title: Rainer Maria Rilke

Rainer Maria Rilke, cult poet of a fascinating, complex personality, always protected by women—in whom he sought shelter and instruction—and frequently adored by them, was a long way from the romantic, angelic image which tradition tends to offer us. After years of attentive reading and careful study of Rilke’s work, letters and documents, some of them hitherto unpublished, Mauricio Wiesenthal delves into the man and comes up with a much more intricate, subtle and human portrait of the prophet of the requiems and the elegies.
