Paul (psinderson) | 43 comments For those of you reading Rilke's "The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge" for our February Bookclub, I came across this short post about Rilke's "Letters to a Young Poet" about the nature of creativity and the importance of solitude.

Just thought it was interesting since Rilke is the topic Du Jour.

Erin (ersiku) | 21 comments Thanks for sharing that link, Paul! Letters to a Young Poet is the only of Rilke's works I've really heard of before, but I've never read it. I haven't started reading our book group pick yet, but I do like the writing and ideas in the article's excerpts. Now I'm hopeful for the book!
