Rainer Maria Rilke's poetry and letters have inspired countless readers around the world with their wisdom and insight into how we can be more than ourselves without recourse to religion, politics, or ideology: through the experiences of art and love. Gathered here for the first time in original translations are Rilke's candid, piercing, and lyrical reflections on love--the experience he considered paramount for human existence but also, with the exception of death, the event for which we are least prepared. Selected from Rilke's poetry and his vast correspondence, these passages present Rilke's contemplations on falling in love, being in love, losing love, and the mystical ways in which love endures.
