There are many different similarities between the book and movie “The Outsiders”, but there are also a lot of comparisons between the two.
In Rainer Maria Rilke 's writing, Letters to a Young Poet “Letter One” Rilke’s word choice keeps his tone steady as he builds on his two central ideas. Rilke, an early 1900’s poet, was asked to give advice to a young poet named, Frank Kappus. Rilke gives his advice through a series of letters. However, Rilke does not believe that criticism should have anything to do with art, so he castigates Kappus for asking for criticism. He focuses on trying to make Kappus realize he must look inside himself to discover who he really is so that he can unlock his purpose and make true art. As Rilke focuses on giving Kappus tips on how to discover who Kappus really is, Rilke’s word choice keeps the tone the same through his two central ideas.
