dc.description.abstractIn making a comparative studs? of 'Mir zur Feier” and its second edition, which appeared under the title of "Pie Frühen Gedichte", it lias been my endeavour to trace the development of Bainer Marla Rilke’s style. Between the publication of the 1st and 2nd editions a period of ten years elapsed - namely from 1899-1909, during which the poet’s literary theory and practice underwent an almost complete change.en
dc.description.abstractIn accordance with "that much worn hut not untrue saying that the style is the man"i a comparison of "Mir zur Feier” and "Die Frühen Gedichte" should yield abundant evidence of Rilke’s progressive development during this decade, for he is one of the great artists, who has ever before him a higher ideal, than that to which he has attained in the past.en
dc.description.abstract"Die Siege laden ihn nicht ein. Sein Wachstum ist: Der Tiafbesiegte von immer Gröszerem zu sein."en

dc.description.abstract"Ich lebe mein Leben in wachsenden Ringen, die sich über den Bingen ziehn."-'en
dc.description.abstractwhile in one of his most recent productions, the "Buineser Elegien", we find poetic expression given to this attitude towards the past.en
dc.description.abstract"Wie er auf dem letzten Hügel, der ihm ganz sein Tal noch einmal zeigt, sich wendet, anhält, weilt -, so leben wir und nehmen immer Abschied."en
dc.description.abstractIt is therefore characteristic of Rilke that he should review his early work in the light of higher ideals.en
dc.description.abstractThe first part of the memoir deals principally with the general qualities of Rilke’s style as evidenced in "Mir zur Feier", especially in those poems, which have been republished unchanged or practically unchanged in "Ble Frühen Gedichte", while Part II consists of a more detailed comparison of the 1st and 2nd editions. The comparative table of contents overleaf indicates the extent of the various changes.en
