"Rainer Rilke" is a little like "William Yeats" or "Jorge Borges." I don't know if I've ever seen the name written that way.

I was getting a little lazy. I've put in his middle name, now: "Ranier Carlos Yeats."

It would be great if you posted more posts like this one. I'm finding this to be incredibly useful.

I love silly quizzes like this, so I'd be glad to. I don't know how useful they are but they can be entertaining.
