"Rainer Maria Rilke,(1875–1926) was a Bohemian-Austrian poet and novelist.

"Duino Elegies", series of 10 poems by RILKE, were composed over a period of 10 years. Rilke wrote the first two elegies, and began the third, while visiting the castle of Duino on the Adriatic in 1912; he finished the third in Paris in 1913 and completed the fourth and began the fifth in Munich in 1915. Emotionally paralyzed by World War I and its aftermath, Rilke wrote little more until February 1922, when in a burst of nearly manic productivity he revised the fifth poem, completed the remaining five of the cycle, and wrote the 55 poems that comprise the Sonnets to Orpheus, all in a span of three weeks."
