This book examines the life and works of August Rodin, a great French sculptor. Written by Rainer Maria Rilke, a German poet who served for several years as Rodin's secretary, it explains the often elusive connection between the creative forces that drive timeless literature and great art. It also discovers in Rodin a man who was utterly committed to the materiality of the artistic vocation. Rodin himself paid Rilke the ultimate tribute, declaring these meditations the supreme interpretation of his work. Printed Pages: 81.
