Rainer Maria Rilke was an Austrian poet and novelist. He is considered to be one of the most lyrically intense German-language poets. His works include one novel, several collections of poetry and books of letters in which he invokes images that focus on the difficulty of communion with the ineffable in an age of disbelief, solitude and anxiety. Rilke remains one of the more popular and best-selling poets in the United States. - Summary by mungojerry311
