Ritmo e metamorfosi. Rilke e Kassner

Daniela Liguori


This essay aims to investigate how the dialogue with Kassner has been for Rilke an essential instrument while dealing with some issues of his poetics which he maturated during his stay in Capri. In particular, it intends to focus the attention on how the theoretical nuclei of Kassner’s Physiognomy – such as his view of the world as an unlimited metamorphic “whole” and his idea of a “rhythmic accord” between vision and visage – are used by Rilke to rethink the sensory experience and to consider it as a way to perceive the continuous flow of things.
