Talk by Antonio Pau

Rilke: his life, his work, his times

Rainer Maria Rilke: A Life of Work

5/10/2011

“A creator who decided to dedicate his life to his poetry”, is how Antonio Pau sums up the life of Rilke, discussing his life and career from his birth in Prague to his years of enforced exile in Switzerland, where he died at the age of 51, and also covering his time in isolation in Paris and his numerous travels. The most outstanding features of Rilke’s work are his own particular language, his thoughts on translation and the “recreation” of poetry and his particular way of viewing love.
