I enjoyed several of his New Poems, such as "The Panther" and "Orpheus, Eurydice, Hermes" quite a bit, but almost nothing else.
I actually got very hung up on his work this past year just because I wanted very much to find something redeeming.
Anyone a big Rilke fan?
I don't enjoy ALL of Rilke's works either though I have revisited to Letters to a Young Poet many times.
That said, some of his poems just hit the mark. I wrote about one here: http://storyacious.com/weekend-poem-sunset-rainer-maria-rilke/. The poem itself is at the end, so you might want to scroll to that first and then read why it appeals.
Also, I'd suggest Robert Bly's translations if you're looking to read more of Rilke's poems.
