About the Author

Grand poete autrichien, Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926) connut de nombreuses femmes (Lou, Clara, puis la princesse Turn und Taxis, Merline?) avec qui il correspond tout au long de sa vie a travers une correspondance volumineuse, et souvent magnifique. Lou Andreas-Salome en est la principale destinatrice jusqu'a sa mort.

Stephen Mitchell's many books include the bestselling Tao Te Ching, Gilgamesh, and The Second Book of the Tao, as well as The Selected Poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke, The Gospel According to Jesus, Bhagavad Gita, The Book of Job, and Meetings with the Archangel.
