      Rainer Maria Rilke: Letters to a Young Poet At the turn of the last century, a year-old student at the Military Academy of Vienna, named Franz Kappus, wanted career advice on his impending secondment to the armed forces, as well as a literary critique on a handful of poems he had recently composed.   Rilke’s letters were published posthumously as Letters to a Young Poet. Despite the title, Rilke’s words are not limited to the young or would-be poets. Rilke’s words touch the human soul and invite change.
