Blicke mir nicht in die Lieder!
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The text of Blicke mir will have struck a chord with Mahler, who according to Alma couldn’t bear to be eavesdropped on while working. Rückert begs the reader not to look at his poems before they are finished. He argues that bees don’t allow anyone to observe their cell-building, and Mahler’s perpetuum mobile is a veritable hive of sotto voce activity.
