The Book of Images

Poetry by Rainer Maria Rilke


The Book of Images is a collection of poetry by the Bohemian-Austrian poet and novelist Rainer Maria Rilke. It was first published in 1902 by Axel Juncker Verlag.
It consists of individual poems written from 1899 and forward. An extended version was published in 1906, after Rilke had written The Book of Hours, with which scholars link The Book of Images as a phase in the poet's writing.
