"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.
