Seminar Description: Neighboring Solitudes: Rilke and the Poetry of Transcendence Led by Mark Wunderlich  
Bohemian-Austrian poet Rainer Maria Rilke is one of the most widely-read German-language poets; his poems speak to the eternal human conditions of grief and longing, of love and faithfulness, and his work meditates on a series of core poetic concerns which we will explore in this brief seminar. We will look at five poems from his collected work and discuss the central ideas that animated Rilke's poetry and prose over the course of his lifetime. No advance preparation is necessary for the seminar; texts will be provided for attendees. The seminar will conclude with a series of writing prompts based on Rilkean ideas for getting poems (and prose) started, and keeping them more information.
