    Ranier Maria Rilke challenges you, "...to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answers." Rilke's ability to combine the sensual and the spiritual into an inspired vision of the art of living is brought to vivid life in his letters. Through his eyes, the everyday difficulties of love, sex, solitude, sadness, and doubt are seen as the archetypal elements of the drama called life.

    At the start of the 20th century, Rainer Maria Rilke wrote a series of letters to a young officer cadet, advising him on writing, love, sex, suffering, and the nature of advice itself.

With honesty, elegance, and a deep understanding of the loneliness that often comes with being an artist, Rilke's letters are an endless source of inspiration and comfort.

    Letters to a Young Poet is a collection of 10 letters written by Rainer Maria Rilke to Franz Xaver Kappus, a 19-year-old officer cadet at the Theresian Military Academy in Wiener Neustadt. Rilke, the son of an Austrian army officer, had studied at the academy's lower school at Sankt Pölten in the 1890s.

    When a young student at a military academy mails some of his poetry to the great poet Rainer Maria Rilke, seeking advice, he initiates years of correspondence, during which Rilke expresses his most personal insights into the artist's relationship with life, the interior needs of the individual growing towards maturity, and how the impulse to artistic creation can and should be a source of abiding and developing happiness even for those who cannot become artists.

    The poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke addresses the issues of God, death, and "destructive time." Rilke tries to transform these problems into an inner world, what he calls "a whole inner world as if an angel, comprehending all space, were blind and looking into himself." Eminent author and translator Stephen Mitchell brings these ideas vividly to life in this new translation of Rilke's most transcendent works.

    Vom ländlich-feudalen Dänemark in die Großstadt Paris gekommen, sieht sich der junge Dichter Malte Laurids Brigge mit Sinneseindrücken überhäuft. In seinen Tagebuchaufzeichnungen findet Malte Zuflucht. Zunächst genügt es ihm, sich schreibend gegen seine Machtlosigkeit in der ihn verschluckenden Großstadt zu wehren. Doch erwachen in ihm immer mehr Ängste. Auf der Suche nach Leitbildern verzweifelt er, Maltes innere Zerrüttung zeigt keine Anzeichen der Heilung.

    En 1903, Rainer Maria Rilke répond à une longue missive envoyée par un jeune homme de vingt ans, Franz Kappus, qui est élève officier comme il le fut à son âge. S'ensuit une correspondance qui durera jusqu'en 1908 et qui sera publiée par les soins de Franz en 1929. Nous ne connaîtrons jamais ses lettres, car il ne publiera que celles de Rilke, préférant s'effacer derrière le poète.

    "Leben Sie jetzt die Fragen. Vielleicht leben Sie dann allmählich, ohne es zu merken, eines fernen Tages in die Antwort hinein." schrieb Rainer Maria Rilke an den jungen Soldaten und Dichter Franz Xaver Kappus, der sich zuvor ratsuchend an den bekannten Schriftsteller wandte. Rilke offenbarte ihm in rührender Sorge seine Antworten auf die wichtigsten Fragen des Lebens in seiner ganzen Bandbreite - mit all seinen Freuden, Nöten und Erlösungen. Zehn Briefe, die in Ihrer Wärme, Intensität und Zeitlosigkeit zu den wohl schönsten Werken der deutschen Literatur gehören.
