"But because truly being here is so much..."
Reviewed in the United States on October 9, 2018
I am absolutely in love with the Duino Elegies. The gravity in this poetry brings me home. I continue to return to these poems whenever I need to reconnect to my own beautiful, terrifying, internal infinity in all its glory.
These aren't feel-good poems in any lighthearted sense; they feel good because they remind us we're not alone in feeling our weight, our mortality, our transience.
We're lucky, in fact, to feel all those things. Even the angels envy us...
