Rilke and a Wild Love for the World

From On Being comes a program on A Wild Love For the World with Joanna Macy, a Buddhist philosopher of ecology and a translator of the poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke. 

One of the most beloved poets of the twentieth century, Rilke is widely celebrated for his depth of insight and timeless relevance. He has influenced generations of writers with his classic Letters to a Young Poet, and his reflections on the divine and our place in the world are disarmingly profound. Many readers find Rilke a trusted guide amid the bustle of our daily experience, reflecting on such themes as impermanence, the beauty of creation, the voice of God, and the importance of solitude.
