Product Description:

At the start of the twentieth century Rainer Maria Rilke wrote a series of letters to a young officer cadet advising him on writing love sex suffering and the nature of advice itself; these profound and lyrical letters have since become hugely influential for writers and artists of all kinds. This book also contains the 'Letter from a Young Worker' a striking polemic against Christianity written in letter-form near the end of Rilke's life. In Lewis Hyde's introduction he explores the context in which these letters were written and how the author embraced his isolation as a creative force. Charlie Louth's afterword discusses the similarities and contrasts of the two works and Rilke's religious and sexual wordplay. This edition also contains a chronology notes and suggested further reading.
