In 1902, Rainer Maria Rilke--then a struggling poet in Germany--went to Paris to research and write a short book about the sculptor Auguste Rodin. The two were almost polar opposites: Rilke in his twenties, delicate and unknown; Rodin in his sixties, carnal and revered. Yet they fell into an instantaneous friendship--and before long Rodin hired Rilke as his secretary.
