Summary:
"When German poet Rainer Maria Rilke died in December, 1926, he was regarded as one of the major poets of the 20th century in any language, as well as one of the most enigmatic of his own time - the one-time associate of Rodin, military school drop-out, painfully detached father and husband, and author of the Duino Elegies, which stands among the most sublime works of all time.".

Abstract:

"When German poet Rainer Maria Rilke died in December, 1926, he was regarded as one of the major poets of the 20th century in any language, as well as one of the most enigmatic of his own time - the one-time associate of Rodin, military school drop-out, painfully detached father and husband, and author of the Duino Elegies, which stands among the most sublime works of all time.".

"Now, BOA Editions is proud to present, for the first time in English, You Alone Are Real to Me: Remembering Rainer Maria Rilke, by the poet's lifelong friend, traveling companion, and muse, Lou Andreas-Salome. Writing in 1927, the year after his death, Salome takes us through accounts of their meetings and travels, the dam-bursts of creativity in which Rilke wrote the Sonnets to Orpheus, and the Duino Elegies, and their long correspondence in which Salome was the essential confluent soul who kept Rilke from utter despair."--BOOK JACKET.
