Language: English. Weight: 11.5 ounces. The German edition was published in 1954. Hardback with DJ. Rilke confided some of his most intimate thoughts to a woman whom he had never met. Magda von Hattingberg, a Viennese concert pianist, sent him an admiring letter in 1914, and for three months that year the poet, who was separated from his wife, poured out his anguish and yearnings to "Benvenuta" (the Welcome One). In poetic, emotionally charged letters, he wrote about the slow growth of his soul, the vast distances that separate lovers, the restorative power of music and his awkwardness in personal relationships. Magda's equally fervent letters instilled in him the resolve to work through his near-suicidal despair as he simmered in Paris. Their correspondence, which ended when the two met, offers a rare glimpse into the tormented mind of a poet.

Trade Paperback. These sequential meditations by one of our most skillful writers constitute a unique genre -- part autobiography, part introspection, part observation, part narrative -- in which a life is continually re-examined in the light of experience and time. Taking personal experience as his core, McConkey builds upon it to reveal connections and create an encompassing "court of memory." We come to know him, his family, his friends, and in the process we recognize elements of our own lives as well. The nexus through which these words pass is the writer's memory. His opening quotation from St. Augustine tells much about both the man and his vision: "All this I do inside me, in the huge court of my memory. There I have by me the sky, the earth, the sea, and all the things in them which I have been able to perceive. There too I encounter myself."
