Composed in 1899 when Rilke was only twenty-three, the interconnected tales of "Stories of God " were inspired by a trip to Russia the young poet had made the year previously. It is said that the vastness of the Russian landscape and the profound spirituality he perceived in the simple people he met led him to an experience of finding God in all things, and to the conviction that God seeks to be known by us as passionately as we might seek to know God. All the great themes of Rilke's later powerful and complex poetry can be found in the "Stories of God ," yet their charming, folktale-like quality has made them among the most accessible of Rilke's works, beloved by all ages.

This series of short stories reportedly was written after the young author's trip to Russia to make people more aware of the presence of God in their daily lives. The author always concludes that he wants the stories told to the children although he tells them to adults. The stories did not achieve their stated purpose with me. Whether that says more about me or the stories I'll leave other readers to decide.
