I have no knowledge of the German Language, but if this translation conjures this kind of emotion, imagine the impact it should have on the reader that reads the original.
Really a great example illustrating the importance of mentorship. and reading the letters you really get close to the two writing these very intimate letters. its a very interesting dynamic.
The part I enjoyed the most is that it gives you perspective, cause the problems the student in the book goes through as the years go by, are problems we can all kinda identify with in some way. not just poets but all kinds of artist. and then comes the experienced teacher who has dealt with it all and in some cases still is, and he shares his wisdom.
The point of the book being that the journey of the artist is a universal one which we all must walk. But with shared knowledge and some help we can make it quicker and maybe avoid some of the more permanent pitfalls.
Just knowing your not alone is comforting and thats why I really enjoyed this book.
It helped change my life. It's like Rainer Maria Rilke is talking to me through time and space. I would say it behooves anyone with creative aspirations to read this book. Truly remarkable.

It's a softback book. Smaller than expected. But it's more about the content than the actually book.
