Item description for Aufzeichnungen Des Malte Laurids Brigge (Insel Taschenbuch) by Rainer Maria Rilke...
Download DescriptionIch sehe seit einer Weile ein, da ich Menschen, die in der Entwicklung ihres Wesens zart und suchend sind, streng davor warnen mu, in den Aufzeichnungen Analogien fr das zu finden, was sie durchmachen; wer der Verlockung nachgibt und diesem Buch parallel geht, mu notwendig abwrts kommen; erfreulich wird es wesentlich nur denen werden, die es gewissermaen gegen den Strom zu lesen unternehmen.

Rainer Maria Rilke was born in Prague in 1875 and died in Valmont, Montreux, in 1926. Throughout his life he travelled restlessly around Europe, meeting Tolstoy in Russia (1900), working as secretary to Rodin in Paris (1905 6), enjoying some aristocratic hospitality (especially at Castle Duino, near Trieste, as guest of Marie von Thurn und Taxis, between 1910 and 1914), working as a clerk in Austria during the war, but finally settling at the Chateau de Muzot, Valais, after 1922.
The turning-points in his career are the "Neue Gedichte" ("New Poems") of 1907 8, together with the journal-novel of the same period, "Die Aufzeichnungen des Malte Laurids Brigge" (1910); and "Duineser Elegeien" and "Die Soneete an Orpheus" of 1922. His final interest was Paul Valery whose poems, "Charmes," he translated in 1925 and imitated in his own "Poemes francais." Michael Hulse was born in Stoke-on-Trent in 1955 and studied at the University of St Andrews. Since 1977 he has taught at the Universities of Erlangen, Eichstatt and Cologne in West Germany, and has spent periods working as a freelance writer. His most recent translations include "Prison Journal"by Luise Rinser (Penguin 1988) and "Paris Diaries"by Ernst Junger. He has also published several collections of poems: "Monochrome Blood," "Dole Queue," "Knowing and Forgetting," and "Propaganda"and has won numerous awards."
