Absolutely. Rilke was passionate and original. Listening to this book reminds me how much his work, "On Love and Other Difficulties," influenced me when I first read it 40 years ago.
Works by Hesse, such as Siddhartha, and Demian.
Precise and energetic--he leaps at every word with enthusiasm. I would probably enjoy his voice, even if he was reading the phone book.
I love the way Rilke grounds ideas about the meaning of life in the visceral feelings of his body.

the emphasis on romance and love
