Lettres à un jeune poète by Rainer Maria Rilke Summary

En 1903, Rilke répond à Franz Kappus, un jeune homme de vingt ans, élève d’un prytanée militaire, qui lui a envoyé ses premiers essais poétiques. Neuf autres lettres suivront, que Kappus publiera en 1929, trois ans après la mort de Rilke. Leur retentissement n’a fait que s’accroître depuis. Bien plus, en effet, qu’un entretien sur le métier poétique, elles forment une extraordinaire méditation sur la solitude, la création, l’accomplissement intérieur de notre être. Cette nouvelle traduction s’accompagne ici d’essais échelonnés entre 1912 et 1919, Sur le poète, Instant vécu et Bruit originaire, ainsi que de poèmes écrits en français, à la fin de sa vie, par l’auteur des Elégies de Duino. Trois visages d’un des plus grands poètes du xxe siècle. Présentation et notes de Hans Hartje et Claude Mouchard.

Lettres à un jeune poète by Rainer Maria Rilke Summary

Texte intégral révisé suivi d'une biographie de Rainer Maria Rilke. De février 1903 à Noël 1908, Rilke adresse dix lettres à un jeune homme qu'il ne connait pas, Franz Xaver Kappus, cadet à l'École militaire de l'armée d'Autriche-Hongrie. Celui-ci sollicite des conseils, doutant de sa vocation littéraire et hésitant entre le métier des armes et celui de la poésie. Le futur auteur des "Cahiers de Malte Laurids Brigge", à peine plus âgé que lui — il a 28 ans à l'époque — lui répond lucidement, non pas en littérateur mais en poète et en philosophe. Ses "Lettres à un jeune poète" ne sont pas un recueil de conseils professionnels mais une profonde méditation — quasi programmatique car portant déjà en germe les thèmes des "Élégies de Duino" et des "Sonnets à Orphée" — sur la poésie, sur l'écriture, sur la vie créatrice et sur le sens de l'existence. "Entrez en vous-même, cherchez le besoin qui vous fait écrire: examinez s'il pousse ses racines au plus profond de votre coeur. Confessez-vous à vous-même: mourriez-vous s'il vous était défendu d'écrire ? Ceci surtout: demandez-vous à l'heure la plus silencieuse de votre nuit: Suis-je vraiment contraint d'écrire ?" Ces lettres d'une portée universelle seront publiées par Kappus en 1929, trois ans après la mort de Rilke.

Letters to a Young Poet: With the Letters from the "Young Poet" by Rainer Maria Rilke,Franz Xaver Kappus,Damion Searls Summary

Nearly a century after the publication of Rilke’s inspirational work, the missing letters of the young poet himself finally appear in this canonical edition. For more than ninety years, eager writers and young poets, even those simply looking for a purpose in life, have embraced the wisdom of Rainer Maria Rilke’s Letters to a Young Poet, first published in 1929. Most readers and scholars assumed that the letters from young poet were forever lost to posterity. Yet, shockingly, the letters were recently discovered by Erich Unglaub, a Rilke scholar, and published in German in 2019. The acclaimed translator Damion Searls has now not only retranslated Rilke’s original letters but also translated the letters by Franz Xaver Kappus, an Austrian military cadet and, yes, aspiring poet. This timeless edition, in addition to joining the two sets of letters together for the first time in English, provides a new window into the workings of Rilke’s visionary poetic and philosophical mind, allowing us to reexperience the literary genius of one of the most inspiring works of twentieth-century literature.

Letters to a young woman by Rainer Maria Rilke Summary

The Bohemian-Austrian poet Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926) was an avid letter writer, and more than 7.000 of his letters have survived. One of his best known collection is Rilke’s Letter to a young woman, published in 1930. This collection gathers several letters that Rilke wrote to Lisa Heise between 1919 and 1924. Rilke was in his 40s at the time of the first letter; Heise was 26 . Her husband of three years had left her and her 2-year-old son. Though Rilke and Heise never met, Rilke emerges in these letters as the compassionate listener and patient teacher. In his final letter to Heise, her situation much improved, Rilke writes: "And what does living mean but this courage to fully grow into a cast, which one day will be broken off from our new shoulders." The result, he says, will be a joyful freedom. The poet would die two years later. Letters to a young woman integrates the collection “Classics of World Literature”, developed by Atlântico Press, a publisher company present in the global editorial market, since 1992.

Diaries of a Young Poet by Rainer Maria Rilke Summary

"In the diaries [Rilke] kept from 1898 to 1900, now translated for the first time . . . the overall impression is that of a genius just coming into his own powers."—Boston Phoenix In April 1898 Rainer Maria Rilke, not yet twenty-three, began a diary of his Florence visit. It was to record, in the form of an imaginary dialogue with his mentor and then-lover, Lou Andreas-Salome, his firsthand experiences of early Renaissance art. The project quickly expanded to include not only thoughts on life, history, and artistic genius, but also unguarded moments of revulsion, self-doubt, and manic expectation. The result is an intimate glimpse into the young Rilke, already experimenting brilliantly with language and metaphor. "For the lover of Rilke, this superb translation of the poet's early diaries will be a watershed. Through Edward Snow's and Michael Winkler's brilliantly supple and faithful translation . . . a new and more balanced picture of Rilke will emerge."—Ralph Freedman

Letters to a Young Writer by Colum McCann Summary

I hope there is something here for any young writer – or any older writer, for that matter – who happens to be looking for a teacher to come along, a teacher who, in the end, can really teach nothing at all but fire. From the critically acclaimed Colum McCann, author of the National Book Award winner Let the Great World Spin, comes a paean to the power of language, and a direct address to the artistic, professional and philosophical concerns that challenge and sometimes torment an author. Comprising fifty-two short prose pieces, Letters to a Young Writer ranges from practical matters of authorship, such as finding an agent, the pros and cons of creative writing degrees and handling bad reviews, through to the more joyous and celebratory, as McCann elucidates the pleasures to be found in truthful writing, for: 'the best writing makes us glad that we are – however briefly – alive.' Emphatic and empathetic, pragmatic and profound, this is an essential companion to any author's journey – and a deeply personal work from one of our greatest literary voices.

Rilke on Love and Other Difficulties: Translations and Considerations by Rainer Maria Rilke,John J. L. Mood Summary

This book was compiled by a Rilke lover for Rilke lovers. John Mood has chosen selections from Rilke and combined them with his own writings and commentary. Included are Rilke's letters on love; poems on love and other difficulties, translated by Mood; shorter selections from Rilke's work; and an essay by Mood. The letters on love present Rilke's exploration of the deepest levels of what love is. His working toward love at these depths was poetic, profound, and thoroughly radical. His language is sensual; his deep spirituality is rooted in the senses. The letters are of crucial importance for those who have passed from puritanism to promiscuity without ever having experienced genuine love. The love poems were written during the period of Rilke's most mature work. They are sensual and explicitly sexual-but they are also tough-minded. The poems reflect great passion and gentle care; his unique joining of the masculine and the feminine is profoundly portrayed. There is also a selection from Rilke's later poems, which many feel are his most significant works. All but a few have appeared in translation only once before. The poems deal with the fundamental difficulty of living-dying, though with greater subtlety, density, and depth than before. The book concludes with a passage from Rilke on the difficulty of writing poetry and of living life; a letter containing an affirmation of life; and Mood's essay on dying, based on Rilke's self-composed epitaph.--Adapted from book jacket.

Rilke in Paris by Rainer Maria Rilke,Maurice Betz,Will Stone Summary

In 1902, the young German writer Rainer Maria Rilke travelled to Paris to write a monograph on the sculptor Auguste Rodin. He returned to the city many times over the course of his life, by turns inspired and appalled by the high culture and low society. Paris was a lifelong source of inspiration for Rilke. Perhaps most significantly, the letters he wrote about it formed the basis of his prose masterpiece, The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge. This volume brings together a new translation of RilkeOCOs essay on poetry, Notes on the Melody of Things, and the first English translation of RilkeOCOs experiences in Paris as observed by his French translator, Maurice Betz.

Possibility of Being by Rainer Maria Rilke Summary

The eighty-four poems included in this small volume will serve as a sound and inviting introduction to Rilke's strategies in the pursuit of "being." And just as the unicorn in "This Is the Creature" has an eternal "possibility of being" but only becomes visible in the mirror held by a virgin, so can our own possibilities become manifest in the mirror held by the sensitive artist. The poems are chosen from The Book of Hours (1899-1903), The Book of Images (1902 and 1906), New Poems (1907 and 1908), Requiem (1909), Duino Elegies (1923), Sonnets to Orpheus (1923), and the posthumous Poems 1906-26. This selection was made by Professor Theodore Ziolkowski of Princeton University, who drew from the various New Directions volumes of Rilke's work translated by J. B. Leishman.
