"In these eight intimate letters written to a teenage Balthus--who would go on to become one of the leading artists of his generation--Rilke describes the challenges he faced, while opening the door for the young painter to take himself and his work seriously. Rilke's constant warmth, his ability to sense in advance his correspondent's difficulties and propose solutions to them, and his sensitivity as a person and an artist come across in these charming and honest letters. Writing during his aged years, this volume paints a picture of the venerable poet as he faced his mortality, through the perspective of hindsight, and continued to embrace his openness towards other creative individuals."-- Publisher's website.
