The Dinggedicht or Object Poem. This poetic form was introduced by Austrian poet, Rainer Maria Rilke in the early 1900s whilst he studied impressionistic paintings. They can either be an observation of man-made objects (especially the more recent Dinggedicht) or an observation of nature.
The Dinggedicht is:
• framed at the discretion of the poet.
• formed by acute observations of concrete images in the world around, expressing symbolically an event, social condition, mood or idea.
