Drawn by some sympathetic note in one of his poems, young people often wrote to Rilke with their problems and hopes. From 1903 to 1908 Rilke wrote a series of remarkable responses to a young would-be poet, on poetry and on surviving as a sensitive observer in a harsh world. An accompanying chronicle of Rilke's life shows what he was experiencing in his own relationship to life and work when he wrote these letters.

    I was reading this on my trip to Europe in 98, right after the SF quake. In Paris I stumbled in a show of Rilke's paraphernalia and it all seemed so momentous, all his suggestions to the poet just right for me too, for anyone who wants to pause and gather his thoughts and figure out who he is and why he does things. I restarted it last night, and it is still near to the bone writing - essential.
