Course Description

November 15, 2012 (time to be announced)
A talk at the Marin Poetry Center
The Russian poet Marina Tsvetaeva considered Rilke, “the embodiment of poetry,”and his work continues to draw and inspire countless readers. In his recent book, In the Image of Orpheus: Rilke—A Soul History, Daniel Polikoff explores in depth and in detail the psychological and literary ground of Rilke’s remarkable achievement. In this related presentation, he will take us on a brief tour of Rilke’s life and work, blending rehearsal of pivotal elements of the poet’s dramatic biography with readings—often in Daniel’s own translation—of some of Rilke’s most compelling poems. Along the way, we will explore crucial aspects of both the poet’s craft and his philosophic vision.
