Nothing if not intrepid ( or foolhardy ) The Wasteland Revisited group have chosen the Austrian writer Rainer Maria Rilke as the challenge to follow their adventures with TS Eliot. We will be meeting monthly in The Secret Salon in the heart of Bath to discuss and share The Letters to a Young Poet, a series of group-chosen study texts, and poems selected particularly to generate ideas for our own new work .
Our first meeting will be on Friday 14th July. The chosen letter will be the one sent to Franz Xaver Kappus from Paris on 17th February 1903. Whenever did an aspiring novice writer receive better advice than this? The translation is by Charlie Louth.
