This article focuses on several books. They are "Rainer Maria Rilke: His Life and Work," by F.W. van Heerikhuizen; "Rainer Maria Rilke: His last Friendship," edited by Marcel Raval and "The Life of the Virgin Mary," by Rainer Maria Rilke. It was the tragedy of Rilke's early youth, and that of his early poetry, that he could not advance beyond what the eye saw, except at exceptional moments when intuition suddenly made all clear. Rilke plunged from feeling and intuition into experience and objectivity and back again, in an extremity of artistic tension which forced him to make choices peculiar to himself alone.
