Letters to a young poet by Rainer Maria Rilke ( Book )
56 editions published between 1934 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 3,205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rilke's Letters to a Young Poet are arguably the most famous and beloved letters of the twentieth century. Written when the poet was himself still a young man, with most of his greatest work before him, they were addressed to a student who had sent Rilke some of his own writing, asking for advice on becoming a writer. The two never met, but over a period of several years Rilke wrote him these ten letters, cherished by readers for what translator Mitchell calls in his Foreword the "vibrant and deeply felt experience of life" that informs them. Eloquent and personal, Rilke's meditations on the creative process, the nature of love, the wisdom of children, and the importance of solitude offer a wealth of spiritual and practical guidance for anyone--Publisher

Poems from the book of hours, "Das stundenbuch," by Rainer Maria Rilke ( Book )
339 editions published between 1903 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 2,170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Book of hours, written in three bursts between 1899-1903, is Rilke's most formative work, covering a crucial period in his rapid ascent from fin-de-siecle epigone to distinctive modern voice. The poems are crucial documents of Rilke's development, from his tour around Russia with Lou Andreas-Salome, through his hasty marriage to Clara Westhoff in the artists' community of Worpswede, to his turn toward the urban modernity of Paris. Rilke assumes the persona of an artist-monk undertaking the Romantics' journey into the self, speaking to God as part transcendent deity, part needy neighbor. Echoes of his juvenile style persist, yet by the end o0f the book the influence of the sculptor Rodin is discernible in the distinctive idiom of urbanity, in the terminology of "things," and in Rilke's turn to the everyday world around him."--Jacket flap

Neue Gedichte = New poems by Rainer Maria Rilke ( Book )
187 editions published between 1907 and 2010 in 8 languages and held by 1,093 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
New Poems (1907-1908) represented a departure for Rilke from the traditional German lyric poetry of which he was then considered a master. Apparent in these poems is the influence of Rodin -- for whom Rilke had worked -- as well as other visual artists, including Hokusai, Cezanne, Van Gogh, and Picasso. In this collection, Rilke forced his language to extremes of subtlety and refinement that only now, in Stephen Cohn's translations, is being captured properly in English

"Rainer Maria Rilke hat mit seiner Lyrik ein Werk geschaffen, das in seiner Gesamtheit zum Grundbestand der deutschen Literatur gehört und zugleich, über die Zeiten hinweg, populär geblieben ist. Seine Texte sind ein nicht abreißender poetischer Gedankenstrom um die großen Fragen der Menschheit, und die Eleganz und die Widerständigkeit ihrer Sprache machen sie, einmal gelesen, zu Lebensbegleitern, die einen immer wieder wie eine geliebte Melodie gefangennehmen. Die Ausgabe wird ergänzt durch eine ausführliche Zeittafel, die einen raschen Überblick über Rilkes Leben und Werk erlaubt. Den Band eröffnet das erste überlieferte Gedicht des achtjährigen René, und er schließt mit seinem letzten, auf dem Sterbebett verfaßten Gedicht. In bisher unerreichter Vollständigkeit werden Rilkes sämtliche Gedichte der Reifezeit geboten und von den Jugendgedichten all jene, die von Rilke zu Zyklen zusammengestellt wurden." --Publisher description

Duineser Elegien by Rainer Maria Rilke ( Book )
155 editions published between 1923 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rainer Maria Rilke, one of Germany's greatest poets, began this work in 1912, at the castle of Duino near Trieste. It took him a decade to complete these meditations on love, death, God, and life's meaning, and he regarded them as his greatest achievement. Innovative and enigmatic, they express his irresolvable conflict between a longing for solitude and a painful loneliness. The elegies' enduring popularity attests to their vivid reflection of the human condition, in all its joy, terror, sorrow, and splendor.Translator C. F. MacIntyre declares these works as ""among the great and unforgettabl

At the beginning of this century, a young German poet returned from a journey to Russia, where he had immersed himself in the spirituality he discovered there. He "received" a series of poems about which he did not speak for a long time - he considered them sacred, and different from anything else he ever had done and ever would do again. This poet saw the coming darkness of the century, and saw the struggle we would have in our relationship to the divine
