Rilke 1875 1926 was a famous German poet, born in Prague He traveled widely throughout Europe, married and had a daughter A dozen years out of school, after Rilke had achieved some fame as a poet, a young man wrote to him asking for advice about life and poetry Rilke wrote ten letters to him over five years The young boy was romantic, frail and dreamy a prisoner, so to speak, in a military boarding school where he was subject to strict discipline, bullying and humiliation It was the same school that Rilke s father sent him to in preparation for a career as a military officer And all those adjectives also applied to Rilke who had been in the identical situation So, in a sense, Rilke poured his heart out writing to his younger self Some of Rilke s writings in the ten letters For the creative artist there is no poverty nothing is insignificant or unimportant There is nothing that manages to influence a work of art less than critical words They always result in or less unfortunate misunderstandings Things are not as easily understood nor as expressible as people usually would like us to believe Most happenings are beyond expression they exist where a word has never intruded Writing in 1904 Rilke was amazingly prescient about the upcoming sexual revolution Perhaps the sexes are closely related than one would think Perhaps the great renewal of t Dear Mr Rilke,Assuming it to be a frequent phenomenon with you, I partake in pleasure and liberty of appointing you the receiver of yet another letter, from a besotted admirer of your wisdom and expression.You see I have always felt that the best stories are those that we wish turned true stories that uplift us with their depths and spring us back to the surface to stay afloat stories that carry our thoughts in their seams and weave the most warm blankets to protect us in the winters of life stories that complete the half drawn picture, packing us to a destination of solace.But above all, a story works best when the mind inking it knows its reader like a best friend knowing when to let her be and when to rejig her When the pen joins dots to create conversations between its one such holder and this distant best friend, the creations turn alive, ringing their elevating bells for years to come.Although I laid hands on a bunch of letters your wrote to Mr.Kappus, your young poet friend, I was taken aback by the loud resonance that penetrated my soul upon reading them You came to bless me with your Letters to a Young PoetRainer Maria Rilke Letters to young poet , written by famed poet Rainer Maria Rilke, starts with aimaginarypoetMr Kappusseeking affirmation, from the great German poet, whether he should write The book continues with a series of letters which are generous answers, to the letters by Young Worker , by Rilke, who was only 28 then, at length, and in great detail about what constitutes creativity and poetry, and how to channel the former into the latter When you read first letter, at the outset, you may get perception as if the poet is not pleased with someone asking him to evaluate works by that someone , however as you move ahead you realize that letters by Rilke are exquisite, deep, very candid and probably of some use to someone new who is seeking advice of experienced ones Rilke begins with probably the most honest statement in critical theoryThere is nothing less apt to touch a work of art than critical words all we end up with there is or less felicitous misunderstandingsand continues further mediation about how to write He then begins a series of discussions, continued throughout the Letters, of how both the Young Poet and his work can become mature, richly developed, and ultimately connected to the Young Poet s creative soul The great poet says that one need not confirmation from others to decide merit of on The last book for the year The soothing, gentle, unimposing yet wise voice of Rilke what better way to fold up one chapter in life and open another, with hope for suffering and joys in apt measure This little book has been my companion for four years now, always half finished, and it feels strange to finally remove the bookmark and to keep it aside.Read it with a forgiving bend Keep in mind that Rilke never wrote them with an intention to publish, it was mostly an attempt to convey a few truths
