Elegies by Rainer Maria Rilke
During a period of spiritual crisis, Rilke began the ten loosely connected
lyric poems that comprise the Duino Elegies. It soon became the work most
frequently associated with Rilkean sensibility. With their symbolic landscapes,
vatic proclamations, complex tropes, and often haunting intensity, the
Duino Elegies rank among the outstanding visionary works of the century.

records "the gleam of particulars" that make up our lives.
