What you'll learn in this poetry class:

While walking on the cliffs above the Adriatic near Duino Castle in Trieste, the poet Rainer Maria Rilke claims to have heard a voice on the wind, saying: “Who, if I cried out, would hear me among the angelic orders?”

This dramatic question, which is part mystical experience and part an act of self-mythologizing, urged the poet to write a group of ten poems that would become a masterpiece of European Modernism, and which would take him ten years to complete. With their digressions and leaps, their treatises on children, animals, puppets and angels, and in a voice that is both otherworldly and almost posthumous, Rilke managed to make a body of work that is sufficiently strange and beautiful enough that we are still drawn to the “terrible angels” animating these poems.

An access link will be emailed to you after purchase.
