Rainer Maria Rilke

Rainer Maria Rilke (1875–1926) is considered one of the most important German-language poets of the modern age. His New Poems (1907–08) and The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge (1910) were informed by his existence in Paris. The long-running Duino Elegies were famously completed at his 13th-century tower of Muzot in 1922. Rilke succumbed to leukaemia at Val-Mont, Montreux in December 1926.
