René Karl Wilhelm Johann Josef Maria Rilke was born on December 4, 1875, and died on December 29, 1926. A Bohemian- Austrian novelist and poet, he is better known as Rainer Maria Rilke.
He is famous for being one of the most lyrically gratifying German- Language poets.
He wrote both highly lyrical prose and verse. Many critics have described his work as mystical. His writings include several collections of poetry, one novel, and many volumes of correspondence.
In his letters, he often muses about communion’s difficulty in an age of solitude, disbelief, and anxiety. His writings often pose him transitioning between traditional and modern writers.
In the late 20th century, he found new audiences when his works were frequently quoted by self- help authors, television programs, motion pictures, and books.
In the USA, he remains one of the best selling poets of all time. In his later years, he settled in Switzerland, which inspired many of his poems.
