De aantekeningen van Malte Laurids Brigge

Novel, Autobiographical novel by Rainer Maria Rilke


The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge was Rainer Maria Rilke's only novel. It was written while Rilke lived in Paris, and was published in 1910. The novel is semi-autobiographical, and is written in an expressionistic style. The work was inspired by Sigbjørn Obstfelder's work A Priest's Diary and Jens Peter Jacobsen's second novel Niels Lyhne of 1880, which traces the fate of an atheist in a merciless world.
The book was first issued in English under the title Journal of My Other Self.
