About the Author: Rainer Maria Rilke

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 more than 400 poems in French, dedicated to his homeland of choice, the canton of Valais in Switzerland.

Rilke, el gran poeta de todos los tiempos, se desdobla en esta luminosa narración en un jovencito que, a sus dieciocho años recién cumplidos, se esfuerza por hacerle comprender a su padre su deseo de irse a Munich ―en ese momento centro cultural y de vanguardia― y allí dedicarse a la poesía, pues para él la vida sólo tiene sentido a través de ella. Siente la necesidad de vivir la plenitud y la aventura que supone entregarse a la literatura en todas sus consecuencias, ya que para el poeta ―en la línea de Heidegger, que fue un gran estudioso de Rilke― la poesía no puede ser un adorno que acompaña la existencia humana, ni una exaltación pasajera, ni un acaloramiento o una diversión. La poesía es el fundamento que soporta la Historia.
