Niklas Pivic Letters to a Young Poet

"Read as little as possible in the way of aesthetics and criticism – it will either be partisan views, fossilized and made meaningless in its lifeless rigidity, or it will be neat wordplay, where one opinion will triumph one day and the opposite the next. Works of art are infinitely solitary and nothing is less likely to reach them than criticism. Only love can grasp them and hold them and do them justice."

Alisa K. Letters to a Young Poet

sigh I need a Rilke in my life. Thank goodness Kappus saved and published the letters, because the honesty and expressive abandon that Rilke corresponds with is universally resonant.

Another tiny book that forces you to consider, maybe not your raison d'être, but at least where your inspiration and ethic for work and life is coming from.
