Dieses booklet: "Gesammelte Werke: Gedichte + Dramen + Erzählungen + Roman + Schriften zu Kunst und Literatur (845 Titel in einem Buch - Vollständige Ausgaben)" ist mit einem detaillierten und dynamischen Inhaltsverzeichnis versehen und wurde sorgfältig korrekturgelesen.
Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926) battle 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.
