page 1 of 96 of Duino Elegies

I wish I had an opportunity to have some royal family allow me unfettered access to a castle within which I can just live their and write poetry.

I wonder if this is why I more like poets like Heaney, W.C.W., and people closer to the average human experience?

I’ve never read Rilke before so I have no idea what I’m in for, but I doubt it will be like Pound’s prison poetry.
