It's not free association (or at least not anymore than the other Dream

Rilke was a jerk in that he was a manipulator, a womanizer, a terrible

overall smarmy, phony guy who many literary giants of the time absolutely
could not stand. (Beautiful poetry, though). See Robert Freedman's
biography Life of A Poet.
