Rainer Maria Rilke

Rilke in 1900 René Karl Wilhelm Johann Josef Maria Rilke (4 December 1875 – 29 December 1926), known as Rainer Maria Rilke (), was an Austrian poet and novelist. Acclaimed as an idiosyncratic and expressive poet, he is widely recognized as a significant writer in the German language. His work is viewed by critics and scholars as possessing undertones of mysticism, exploring themes of subjective experience and disbelief. His writings include one novel, several collections of poetry and several volumes of correspondence.

Rilke traveled extensively throughout Europe, finally settling in Switzerland, which provided the inspiration for many of his poems. While Rilke is best known for his contributions to German literature, he also wrote in French. Among English-language readers, his best-known works include two poetry collections: ''Duino Elegies'' ('''') and ''Sonnets to Orpheus'' (''''), a semi-autobiographical novel ''The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge'' (''''), and a collection of ten letters published posthumously ''Letters to a Young Poet'' (''''). In the later 20th century, his work found new audiences in citations by self-help authors and frequent quotations in television shows, books and motion pictures. Provided by Wikipedia
