While visiting Russia in his twenties, Rainer Maria Rilke was moved by the monastic practice of following a book of hours: a collection of psalms and prayers offered throughout the day. When Rilke returned to Germany, he put down on paper what he felt were spontaneously received prayers. The poems address many urgent concerns, such as spirituality in the face of the decline of organized religion, and the sufferings of war, poverty, and disease.
