You'd be far better off buying 'Ahead of All Parting' (Modern Library) edited ...
on 5 May 2015
The content as others have said... is well worth reading. And I won't add to their already 'gleaming' comments in this review. My surprise though, was how slim this tome is. Fiscally speaking... whether the 'sixty-two' pages of 'actual' content are worthy of the £8.99 asking price, is another matter. This waif-like novella will take an hour of your time to finish. Please be aware of this when purchasing. You'd be far better off buying 'Ahead of All Parting' (Modern Library) edited by Stephen Mitchell ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ahead-All-Parting-Selected-Library/dp/0679601619 ) if you wanted to initially delve into the existentially mystical Rilke.
