    Rainer Maria Rilke is considered one of the German language s greatest 20th century poets His haunting images tend to focus on the difficulty of communion with the ineffable in an age of disbelief, solitude, and profound anxiety themes that tend to position him as a transitional figure between the traditional and the modernist poets.He wrote in both verse and a highly lyrical prose His two most famous verse sequences are the Sonnets to Orpheus and the Duino Elegies his two most famous prose works are the Letters to a Young Poet and the semi autobiographical The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge He also wrote than 400 poems in French, dedicated to his homeland of choice, the canton of Valais in Switzerland.

    I Should Not Write Again Ever BUT YOU SHOULD READ THIS especially, if, like me, you first read Rilke as a lovesick teenager writing horrible poetry and liked his work okay, and didn t think about him again for years

    Outstanding This book is like medecine for my apathy It humbled me, reminded me that in spite of the pointlessness that runs like a thread through our lives, in spite of all the anxiousness, the insecurities, the feeling of inferiority, of puniness, there is so much to live for, if only you can dare to see it I love this so much.

    I didn t get it Seriously Orybe I did, and I m totally underwhelmed I loved Rilke s Letters To a Young Poet , and that s what made me want to look his poems up Did I pick the wrong selection I kept feeling like each poem started building momentum to reach significance, but I was robbed of my expectation each and every time Only one poem that really seemed to reach me The Dog , which was incredible One Could Rilke be too much of a romantic surrealist to appeal to me It was all so maudlin and hype [...]

    If you re a fan of Rilke, you ll enjoy this compact book of his poems The book contains poems from The Book of Images New Poems Requiem for a Friend Poems, 1906 1926 French Poems The Life of Mary Sonnets to Orpheus The Duino Elegies Letters to a Young Poet and an index of first lines My personal favorite is the French Poems, especially Child in Red To have a multitude of his poems from various books compiled into one creates an interesting view of Rilke s work as a whole.

    My rating reflects my view of the relative merit of the translations Frankly, I don t care for J.B Leishman s translations, although they re better than some of the bizarre renderings others have put out.

    Is there anything better than Rilke to make you think about your life And how you live it And how others live in and out of your life His Requiem for a Friend poem was given to me recently and I had forgotten how moving his work could be I keep coming back to him, about every 10 years or so There is no better sign of a classic than one that evolves with you.
