Dieses eBook: "Duineser Elegien: Ein metaphysisches Weltbild in zehn Elegien (Vollständige Ausgabe)" ist mit einem detaillierten und dynamischen Inhaltsverzeichnis versehen und wurde sorgfältig korrekturgelesen. Duineser Elegien ist der Titel einer Sammlung von zehn Elegien des Dichters Rainer Maria Rilke. Ihr Name leitet sich vom Schloss Duino bei Triest ab, wo Rilke 1912 Gast der Gräfin Marie von Thurn und Taxis-Hohenlohe war. Dort entstand die erste Elegie. Elegien changieren zwischen der Darstellung glücklicher Momente – wie beispielsweise in der Liebe –, und der Klage über allgemeine Probleme des menschlichen Bewusstseins. Rilkes ästhetischer Anspruch an die Elegien war die Zusammenführung der traditionellen Forme der Hymne und der Elegie. In den Duineser Elegien entwickelt er ein metaphysisches Weltbild. Der literarische Gehalt der Elegien erschöpft sich jedoch keineswegs in der Ausformulierung eines philosophischen Gedankens, sondern besteht zu einem wesentlichen Teil auch in der Form, in der dieser ausgedrückt wird. Daher kann die bloß paraphrasierende Inhaltsangabe dem Text nicht gerecht werden. Die Duineser Elegien beschäftigen sich mit den Widersprüchen der condition humaine, mit den Widersprüchen in der Existenzweise und den Existenzbedingungen des Menschen. Die menschliche Seinsweise ist für Rilke problematisch, weil die „selbstreflexive Gespaltenheit des menschlichen Bewußtseins", also die Möglichkeit, sich selbst zu betrachten, und die daraus resultierende Unsicherheit sowie das Wissen von Vergänglichkeit und Tod unbegreiflich ist. Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926) war ein Lyriker deutscher Sprache. Er gilt als einer der bedeutendsten Dichter der literarischen Moderne. 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.

Poetry. Winner of the 2011 Norma Farber First Book Award from the Poetry Society of America. John Beer's first collection, THE WASTE LAND AND OTHER POEMS, employs the wit of a philosopher and the ear of a poet to stage ways of reading that are political, personal, and theoretical. The speaker of these poems also brings humor to the dissecting table, to prod the legacies of great works of the imagination while balancing irony and affection.

The Great War, The Waste Land and the Modernist Long Poem explores how cultural responses to the trauma of the First World War found expression in the form of the modernist long poem. Beginning with T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land, Oliver Tearle reads that most famous example of the genre in comparison with lesser known long poems, such as Hope Mirrlees's Paris: A Poem, Richard Aldington's A Fool I' the Forest and Nancy Cunard's Parallax. As well as presenting a new history of this neglected genre, the book examines the ways in which the modernist long poem represented the seminal literary form for grappling with the crises of European modernity in the wake of World War I.

The Waste Land - The Waste Land is a long poem by T. S. Eliot. It is widely regarded as one of the most important poems of the 20th century and a central text in Modernist poetry. Published in 1922, the 434-line poem first appeared in the United Kingdom in the October issue of The Criterion and in the United States in the November issue of The Dial. It was published in book form in December 1922. Among its famous phrases are "April is the cruellest month", "I will show you fear in a handful of dust", and the mantra in the Sanskrit language "Shantih shantih shantih". Eliot's poem loosely follows the legend of the Holy Grail and the Fisher King combined with vignettes of contemporary British society. Eliot employs many literary and cultural allusions from the Western canon, Buddhism and the Hindu Upanishads. Because of this, critics and scholars regard the poem as obscure. The poem shifts between voices of satire and prophecy featuring abrupt and unannounced changes of speaker, location, and time and conjuring of a vast and dissonant range of cultures and literatures. The poem's structure is divided into five sections. The first section, The Burial of the Dead, introduces the diverse themes of disillusionment and despair. The second, A Game of Chess, employs vignettes of several characters—alternating narrations—that address those themes experientially. The Fire Sermon, the third section, offers a philosophical meditation in relation to the imagery of death and views of self-denial in juxtaposition influenced by Augustine of Hippo and eastern religions. After a fourth section that includes a brief lyrical petition, the culminating fifth section, What the Thunder Said, concludes with an image of judgment. T. S. Eliot - Thomas Stearns Eliot OM (26 September 1888 – 4 January 1965), better known by his pen name T. S. Eliot, was an American-born British essayist, publisher, playwright, literary and social critic and "one of the twentieth century's major poets". He moved to England in 1914 at age 25, settling, working and marrying there. He was eventually naturalised as a British subject in 1927 at age 39, renouncing his American citizenship. Eliot attracted widespread attention for his poem "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" (1915), which is seen as a masterpiece of the Modernist movement. It was followed by some of the best-known poems in the English language, including The Waste Land (1922), "The Hollow Men" (1925), "Ash Wednesday" (1930) and Four Quartets (1945).[4] He is also known for his seven plays, particularly Murder in the Cathedral (1935). He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1948, "for his outstanding, pioneer contribution to present-day poetry".
