These ten letters by Rainer Maria Rilke speak directly to the young, offering unguarded thoughts on creativity, solitude, self-reliance, living with uncertainty, the shallowness of irony, the uselessness of criticism, career choices, sex, love, God, and art (which is only another way of living, Rilke writes).
