Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Includes both the English and German texts

Anita Barrows and Joanna Macy, whose translation Rilke's Book of Hours won an ardent readership, now offer their English rendition of selections from the poet's last great works. Widely loved for its depth of insight and timeless relevance, Rainer Maria Rilke's poetry is among the finest lyrical verse of the last century. His Sonnets to Orpheus and Duino Elegies, most of which were written simultaneously in February 1922, were mutually inspired and deserve to be read together.

About the Author

Anita Barrows, a prize-winning poet and a clinical psychologist, is the author of four books of her own poetry and the recipient of an NEA grant as well as the Quarterly Review of Literature's Contemporary Poetry Award. She has been a professional translator for more than thirty years. JOANNA MACY, whose eight books include World as Lover, World as Self, is a scholar of systems theory and Buddhist thought who helps people find inner resources for dealing with global crises.
