Rainer Maria Rilke

From Immortal Poetry
Jump to: navigation, search

Rainer Maria Rilke (4 December 1875 – 29 December 1926) 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.
