Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926) struggle ein Lyriker deutscher Sprache. Mit seiner in den Neuen Gedichten vollendeten, von der bildenden Kunst beeinflussten Dinglyrik gilt er als einer der bedeutendsten Dichter der literarischen Moderne. Daneben verfasste er Erzählungen, Dramen, einen Roman und Aufsätze zu Kunst und Kultur. Beeinflusst durch die Philosophen Schopenhauer und vor allem Nietzsche, deren Schriften er früh kennengelernt hatte, ist Rilkes Werk geprägt durch eine scharfe Kritik an der Jenseitsorientierung des Christentums und an einer einseitig naturwissenschaftlich-rationalen Weltdeutung. Die Anerkennung der Wirklichkeit ohne Jenseitsvertröstungen oder soziale Entwicklungsromantik prägt auch Rilkes Weltverständnis. Dafür stehen extensive Beobachtungen der Natur sowie des menschlichen Verhaltens und Gefühlslebens. Dies alles bildet Rilkes "Weltinnenraum", in dem sich Außen- und Innenwelt verbinden.

By Charles Bukowski

Poems emerging from and returning to Bukowski's own reports replicate humans, gadgets, areas, and occasions of the exterior international, and displays on them, on their method out and back.

__

"Love is a puppy From Hell captures Bukowski's massive expertise for taking pictures a temper and throwing the reader into his global. this can be a superb variation of recent poetry that completely captures the degenerated angst of the interval. what's fairly awesome here's Bukowski's acute know-how of the decay that surrounds him."
-- GoodReads

"Take off the rose-colored glasses...return your seats to their upright position...place your head among your knees and get ready for a crash touchdown. Don't get me fallacious: this e-book isn't really a diatribe condemning love. We've all learn and enjoyed our Byron, yet now it's time to step during the having a look glass, childrens. Love may well "walk in good looks just like the night" yet, "Love, Bukowski Style"...asks you to recollect that "the night" isn't the easiest venue for readability of imaginative and prescient. Bukowski speaks to that different part of love...vitriolic, soul-destroying, perverted, barbaric and insane. All, who've ever enjoyed, will locate the phrases for his or her feelings...the emotions for his or her loss of words... in Bukowski's auto-Eros-dissection. Why might I recommend you learn this quantity of poetry? Why may a person are looking to topic themself to such unpleasantries? what sort of sadist am I, that i might ask you to intentionally topic your self to the discomfort of affection? to grasp love, is to understand the discomfort of affection. but for the entire soreness inherent in love, we search love repeatedly. not anything routines our presents of desire and religion extra strenuously. Love could be a "dog from hell" to Bukowski, yet he's nonetheless not able to cover his wish, his desire and his desire for extra love. Bukowski - alcoholic, misanthrope, barbarian, gutter rat - who writes of affection and will nonetheless say..."It softens a man."
