One night I held between my hands your face. The moon fell upon it.

In 1916 Rainer Maria Rilke presented the writer Rudolf Kassner with a notebook containing twenty-two poems meticulously copied out in his own hand which bore the title Poems to
Night. This cycle of poems which came about in an almost clandestine manner are now thought to represent one of the key stages of this master poet's development.

Never before translated into English this collection brings together all Rilke's significant night poems in one volume.
