Le "Lettere a un giovane poeta" furono realmente indirizzate da Rilke al giovane scrittore Kappus fra il 1903 e il 1908. Pubblicate postume nel 1929, si diffusero in breve tempo nei paesi di lingua tedesca come una specie di breviario – non tanto d’arte quanto di vita. Oggi, nella generale riscoperta di Rilke, ormai sfrondato di quegli omaggi sensibilistici che per molti avevano a lungo impedito l’accesso alla sua grande poesia, queste pagine tornano a essere una guida preziosa. Fin dalle prime righe, esse ci danno l’accordo che poi sentiremo risuonare in ogni parola di Rilke: «La maggior parte degli avvenimenti sono indicibili, si compiono in uno spazio che mai parola ha varcato, e più indicibili di tutto sono le opere d’arte, misteriose esistenze, la cui vita, accanto alla nostra che svanisce, perdura». Scrivere, per Rilke, era al tempo stesso un atto che poneva esigenze assolute, mutando la vita intera, e un oscuro processo biologico, una fermentazione delicata dove alla coscienza spettava soprattutto di stare in ascolto, esercitando un’ardua «passività attiva». E proprio in queste lettere Rilke ha saputo illustrare la sua «via» alla letteratura con le parole più precise e più dense. Unite a due altri brevi testi di carattere affine (le "Lettere a una giovane signora" e "Su Dio"), le "Lettere a un giovane poeta" vengono qui proposte nella celebrata versione di Leone Traverso, che fu uno dei primi e più felici interpreti di Rilke in Italia.

'An indescribable, aching, futile longing for myself' The young Danish aristocrat Malte Laurids Brigge has been left rootless by the early death of his parents. Now living in Paris, Malte begins to record his life in a series of loosely connected notes, diary entries, prose poems, parables and stories, ostensibly collected by a fictional editor to form the Notebooks. Focusing on Malte's observations and experiences in the present, recollections of his childhood and family, and his reflections on historical events, these notes in highly crafted poetic prose explore the themes of life in the metropolis, poverty, sickness and death, love, memory and time, and perception and language. The only extended prose work by the German poet Rainer Maria Rilke, The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge is a landmark in the development of the twentieth-century novel. It marks a radical departure from nineteenth-century realism, transcending conventions of linear narrative to reflect a consciousness in crisis, and an archetypal confrontation with the modern. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

The Assistant, Bernard Malamud's second novel, originally published in 1957, is the story of Morris Bober, a grocer in postwar Brooklyn, who "wants better" for himself and his family. First two robbers appear and hold him up; then things take a turn for the better when broken-nosed Frank Alpine becomes his assistant. But there are complications: Frank, whose reaction to Jews is ambivalent, falls in love with Helen Bober; at the same time he begins to steal from the store. Like Malamud's best stories, this novel unerringly evokes an immigrant world of cramped circumstances and great expectations. Malamud defined the immigrant experience in a way that has proven vital for several generations of writers. "His best novel . . . The Assistant is as tightly written as a prose poem." --Morris Dickstein in Leopards in the Temple: The Transformation of American Fiction 1945-1970

Ugo Foscolo's Last Letters of Jacopo Ortis, written between 1799 and 1815, was the first true Italian novel. Its epistolary form is in the eighteenth-century tradition of novels like Clarissa Harlowe and the Nouvelle Heloise. Jacopo's tragic love for Teresa and his subsequent suicide recall The Sorrows of Young Werther. In addition to being an intensely political novel, this work also expresses the author's romantic conception of nature as a mirror of human emotions.
