It is extremely important...

...that someone rhapsodize an essay about Rilke's attraction to Schopenhauer's thought. I will wait calmly, yet with a certain impatience, for someone to write what Schopenhauer meant to Rilke and how that influence might have affected the nature of his poems, thematically and tonally.
