Publisher's Summary

Rainer Maria Rilke was a giant of twentieth-century writing who remains a rare visionary voice for our own time. This audio edition of Dr. Stephanie Dowrick's acclaimed book allows you literally to "hear" how and why Rilke's extraordinary words continue to captivate readers, not least through his profound understanding of the depth and beauty of human existence.

Drawing on her deep understanding and appreciation of Rilke's writing, as well as her own personal spiritual and literary journey, Stephanie Dowrick offers an intimate, highly accessible appreciation of this astonishing writer, his fascinating life, and his transcendent work.
