Judith Ryan traces Rilke's development from aestheticism to modernism, paying special attention to the way his work engages with other poetry and the visual arts. Taking a skeptical view of Rilke's own myth of himself as a solitary genius, Ryan shows how deeply his writing is embedded in the culture of its day. Rilke is now the most widely-read and influential German-language poet, and this study is full of surprising discoveries about his innovative and often profoundly moving poems.

Review:

"...this solid literary history is recommended for all libraries." Choice

"In the flood of secondary literature on Rilke, an essential book comes along now and then. Because of its general clarity of arguments, its evidence of vast parallel reading (and viewing), the the keeness of its perceptions and arguments, and - best of all- the novelty of its insight, Professor Ryan's entry in the Cambridge Studies in German must be regarded as a major event." George C. Schoolfield, Germanic Notes and Reviews

"...an exemplary piece of scholarly writing...full of fascinating new finds...destined to change the way we think about the poet and his work." Modern Language Quarterly

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. If the rise of modernism is the story of a struggle between the burden of tradition and a desire to break free of it, then Rilke's poetic development is a key example of this tension at work. Taking a sceptical view of Rilke's own myth of himself as a solitary genius, Judith Ryan reveals how deeply his writing is embedded in the culture of its day. She traces his often desperate attempts to grapple with problems of fashion, influence and originality as he shaped his career during the crucial decades in which modernism was born. This 1999 book was the first systematic study of Rilke's trajectory from aestheticism to modernism as seen through the lens of his engagement with poetic tradition and the visual arts. It is full of surprising discoveries about individual poems. Above all, it shifts the terms of the debate about Rilke's place in modern literary history. Seller Inventory # APC9780521661737
