Letters to a Young Poet

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I recently came across Rilke in a movie – I believe it was Marriage Story – which I watched just before it was the turn for Letters to a Young Poet. That I hadn’t really had any prior knowledge of Rilke goes to show that I don’t know a lot about poetry.

This collection however collects letters between Rilke and another aspiring poet, but they contain much more than talk about poetry. I was moved by these letters. They caught me by surprise. However, the edition contained not a single of his poems, but they are all available in the public domain, so I will have to check these out.
