Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926) battle 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. Beeinflusst durch die Philosophen Schopenhauer und vor allem Nietzsche, deren Schriften er früh kennengelernt hatte, ist Rilkes Werk geprägt durch eine scharfe Kritik an der Jenseitsorientierung des Christentums und an einer einseitig naturwissenschaftlich-rationalen Weltdeutung. Die Anerkennung der Wirklichkeit ohne Jenseitsvertröstungen oder soziale Entwicklungsromantik prägt auch Rilkes Weltverständnis.

Na primeira obra poética de José Saramago descobre-se uma poesia de liberdade, de fraternidade e de luta. Uma luta disfarçada, por dentro das palavras. Pelo inside labiríntico de respiração que habitam todos estes poemas, publicados pela primeira vez em 1966. Digamos que eram os «poemas possíveis» da altura, quando a censura espiava a alma dos escritores. E no entanto, as convicções profundas de Saramago já são bem visíveis em poemas como «Criação»: «Deus não existe ainda, nem sei quando / Sequer o esboço, a cor se afirmará / No desenho confuso da passagem / De gerações inúmeras nesta esfera. // Nenhum gesto se perde, nenhum traço, / Que o sentido da vida é este só: / Fazer da Terra um Deus que nos mereça, / E dar ao Universo o Deus que espera.» (Diário de Notícias, nine de Outubro de 1998)
