Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This work contains representative poems from the author's early collections.

Review:

"This is, without any doubt, the best English rendering of Rilke. It is as faithful to the original as the translation of poetry can hope to be, faithful not only to its linguistic meaning but to its poetic expressiveness." Erich Heller

Review:

"Stephen Mitchell's translation of Rilke's most demandingly difficult and loveliest work instantly makes every other rendering obsolete. No doubt about it, Rilke has at last found, in Mr. Mitchell's version, the ideal poetics and the perfect translator." William Arrowsmith

Review:

"Perhaps the most beautiful group of poetic translations this century has produced." Chicago Tribune
