Rainer Maria Rilke

Rainer Maria Rilke

 Rainer Maria Rilke

René Karl Wilhelm Johann Josef Maria Rilke ( 4 December 1875 . 29 December 1926).better known as Rainer Maria Rilke.was a Bohemian-Austrian poet and novelist. Rilke is "widely recognized as one of the most lyrically intense German-language poets," writing in both verse and highly lyrical prose. Several critics have described Rilke's work as inherently "mystical". His work includes one novel, several collections of poetry, and several volumes of correspondence in which he invokes haunting images that focus on the difficulty of communion with the ineffable in an age of disbelief, solitude, and profound anxiety. These deeply existential themes tend to position him as a transitional figure between the traditional and the modernist writers.
