Summary/Abstract: Two poets at the peak of their creative work, two cycles of elegies, a possible connection? Jiří Orten reads Rilke's Duino Elegies in 1939, his own elegies are published in 1941. How could such inspiration look for decades? Is there evidence in Orten's diaries? Two different worlds of experience, two different poetic languages, common topics excluded? Duino Elegies and the Elegies by Jiří Orten have been instrumental in following generations of poets, raising elemental existential questions and pointing out a path to hope and life.
