There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The letters struck a cord in me quite promptly as I started reading them, and effectively finished the book in one sitting - fully engrossed in Rilke's writing. Rilke discusses many matters with Kappus, firstly stating how, when creating art, it needs to come from your innermost being: "go into yourself and see how deep the place is which your life flows; at its source you will find the answer to the question of whether or not you must create"
Rilke continues to discuss love, how meaningless criticism is from outside sources are on art you have put your soul into to create, the importance of solitude, and how important it is to not get involved in questioning life constantly, as it will always answer your question in time. I'll end this review with a quote from the book that is conclusive and leaves you with an incentive to read this wonderful work!
"I want to add just one more bit of advice: to keep growing, silently and earnestly, through your whole development; you couldn't disturb it any more violently than by looking outside and waiting for outside answers to questions that only your innermost feeling, in your quietest hour, can perhaps answer."
But I can tell you that later, too, one always remains the same wonderer when going through these books, and that they lose relinquish nothing
overwhelm the reader the first time. nothing of the wonderful force and of the fabulousness whith wich they
That is where the sentence stops. And the loose/relinquish part seems like someone was trying to choose the correct translation and accidentally left both words there.
So I like the book itself, just not this Kindle version of it.
