5.0 étoiles sur 5 For the Artist 24 octobre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This book first came to my attention when a good friend of mine sent me a quote from it, which has since become my life quote ("Be patient toward everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves..Do not search for the answers which could not be given to you now because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything...Live the questions now")
Since I heard this quote, I tracked down a copy of the book after searching a half dozen bookstores and libraries, and it was worth every minute of work to find it. This book has been put on the highest level of appreciation in my mind, up there with Richard Bach's 'Illusion' and 'One'; my two other favorite books. Rilke's book was written for the artist; the person who wants to live life to its fullest and explore both the inner and outer world and their connections.
Although, as another reviewer said, this book will not be fully appreciated by all readers, it is a must read for everyone, especially those who appreciate spirituality, art and living.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 eternal wisdom should be shared with everyone 17 septembre 1998
Par Jim S (jseratt@bop.gov) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
A very good friend gave this book to me as I was struggling to find myself during my early college years. I was instantly amazed at how a book written over ninety years ago could be so precisely helpful to the many questions I was suffering with at the time. Rilke introduced me to the concept of solitude as a blessing. This idea has truly changed my life for the better as I have taken the time to step away from life and look inside for the answers I seek. If I had one gift to give someone I truly cared about, it would be this masterpiece. Although the contents of this book can not be appreciated by everyone, I challenge all to read it and see if it sparks the fire in them that it has brought to me.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 New edition of Letters to a young poet loses in translation 19 octobre 2000
Par Tascha Dresser - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This is my third encounter with This collection of letters written by Rilke to a young poet who sought his guidance and approval a century ago. The first edition or translation I believe is the best with this new edition being my last out of the three editions I know. The translator, who saught to make Rilke's word accessible to the readers of todays world , in so doing took away some of the poetic fluency from his letters .Such as letter eight where it goes" How should we forget those ancient myths that are at the beginning of all peoples, the myths about dragons who at the last minute turn into princeses? Perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave. Perhaps everything terrible is something helpless who wants our help. You must not be frightend if a sorrow rises up before you larger than any you have ever seen, if a restiveness like light and cloud shadows passes over your hands and over all you are doing. You must think that something is happening with you, that life has not forgotten you, that it holds you in its hands. It will not let you fall". This is the version of this passage from letter eight that I remember and have shared with my loved ones ever since I discovred these letters years ago when I thought someone could use some hopeful words and needed uplifting and not the ones from this new edition that has lost some of its poetic magic and moved people for generations. I will have to agree with one other reviewer who said that this book is good if you want a keepsake of this classic collection of letters but if you want them to move you seek another version.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Letter I wrote my friend upon sending this book: 25 septembre 1999
Par l-carter@nwu.edu - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Erin, I'm sitting in my corner room which is a horrendous mess currently. But if I look out of the windows a certain way, I feel as though I'm looking over the iron balconies of Paris in the twenties. Which is rather nice. I've been reading voraciously the past few days, and I want to send you a book. It expresses things about religion, about solitude, about sex, about life, which strike a chord inside me, creating a real harmony. The writer has a way of causing in me that feeling when I can't remember a word, but it's on the tip of my tongue. I understand the essence of the word, but I can't place the actual thing. It escapes me. Then someone relieves me by coming up with precisely that word. (Perhaps after days of torture.) It's a jubilant occurance when I pronunce it. The comfort of matching name with thing. This writer brings me this relief about all the lost musings of my life. He puts perfectly into words a combination of philosophies, and his writing resonates with that absolute truth which transcends the individual. I think you'll like. Auf wiedersehen. Love, Lauren

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Poor translation. 2 août 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com

First, let me say Rilke is one of my favorite poets. That being said...I was greatly disappointed in this translation. There are sections where it seems the translator simply grabbed a thesaurus or perhaps a German to English phrase book and in turn does not do Rilke justice. If you have read or are interested in reading LETTERS TO A YOUNG POET, I highly recommend the translation by Stephen Mitchell. Simply put, his is the best there is. Enjoy!

Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day. &quote;
