3.0 out of 5 stars Spacing detracts from poetry 3 Mar. 2012
I love the poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke but in this version, poem follows poem with the same monotonous spacing. I particularly disliked the unnecessary spacing between the lines which detracts from enjoyment of the poetry. It would be nice, too, to have an index that takes you to the poem instead of trying to find it somewhere in the sea of text. It is with publications like this that I miss real books.
I would recommend looking for a different version of this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unacceptable Kindle edition 19 May 2012
By John Harllee - Published on Amazon.com
This Kindle edition (B006ZN2C4S) has no links in the table of contents. A book of poems with no links! Furthermore the formatting is mindless. Not worth 99 cents. Not worth zero.
