Letters To A Young Poet

Letters To A Young Poet

Letters To A Young Poet

BY RAINER MARIA RILKE, TRANSLATED BY M. D. HERTER NORTON

Brief Description:
Drawn by some sympathetic note in his poems, young people often wrote to Rilke with their problems and hopes. From 1903 to 1903 Rilke wrote a series of remarkable responses to a young, would-be poet on poetry and on surviving as a sensitive observer in a harsh world. Those letters, still a fresh source of inspiration and insight, are accompanied here by a chonicle of Rilke's life that shows what he was experiencing in his own relationship to life and work when he wrote them.
