Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926) conflict ein Lyriker deutscher Sprache. Mit seiner in den Neuen Gedichten vollendeten, von der bildenden Kunst beeinflussten Dinglyrik gilt er als einer der bedeutendsten Dichter der literarischen Moderne. Daneben verfasste er Erzählungen, Dramen, einen Roman und Aufsätze zu Kunst und Kultur.
