Rainer Maria Rilke

Welcome! Years ago I stumbled upon a book entitled¬†Rilke on Love and Other Difficultiesby John J. Mood. I was immediately drawn to Rilke’s poetry and writings and created this web site in devotion to Rilke, now 12 years old! I hope you will enjoy his poetry as much as I do. Thanks to all those who have written me over the years.

This web site features a selection of over 200 excerpts of Rilke’s poems and quotations from various English translations.Indexes to his works are provided, as well as a selected bibliography of Rilke’s works, translations, and books about him.
