But during this period he wrote poetry continually, often prolifically - in letters, in guest books, in presentation copies, and chiefly in the pocket-books he always carried with him.

The body of this uncollected work in German exceeds five hundred pieces, a remarkable number of which must be counted among Rilkes finest poems. They range from finished poems of great poise and brilliance, to headlong statements that hurtle through their subjects, to hauntingly self-contained fragments, to short bursts that arc into the unpursuable.

Together they share a nakedness and an immediacy of voice that make them feel uncannily contemporary and draw the reader close. Edward Snows selection of more than a hundred of these little-known and neglected poems - the first edition of such scope for the general reader - distills the best of the uncollected poems while offering a wide enough choice to convey Rilkes variety and industry during the years he wrote them.
