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.

Written as an epistolary monologue, Last Letters of Jacopo Ortis is a compelling portrayal of a troubled mind. Published here for the first time in the English language, it is presented with Foscolo's highly acclaimed poem, Of Tombs. Banished from his homeland and from the woman he loves, Jacopo Ortis lives with the insufferable feelings of disillusionment and betrayal. Gone are his youthful dreams of literary glory, and in their place only his embittered laughter at fortune, at men, and at God. In the anguish of his state he feels himself compelled to make one final, titanic, and tragic gesture to the rulers of his age.

Rilke's great cycle of ten elegies, perhaps his most profound poetic achievement, had its inception on the morning of January 21, 1912, but was interrupted by the First World War and not completed until a decade later. The Duino Elegies are not only the result of an extraordinary kind of contact with the unseen world; they are an attempt to understand that world in its holistic relationship to the visible, tangible world. This powerful rendering of the cycle is a product of the collaboration between a poet, Norris, and a Germanist, Keele.
