Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rilke's falls into three parts: (1899), (1901), and (1903).  Although these poems were the work of Rilke's youth, they contain the germ of his mature convictions. Written as spontaneously received prayers, they celebrate a God who is not the Creator of the Universe, but seems to be rather humanity itself, and, above all, that most intensely conscious part of humanity, the artist. This exquisite gift edition contains Babette Deutsch's classic translations, which capture the rich harmony and suggestive imagery of the originals, allowing interpretations both religious and philosophical, and transporting the reader to new heights of inspiration and musicality.

Synopsis:

Sacred and intimate poems by the great German poet, written between 1899 and 1903 when Rilke was in his twenties.

Synopsis:

A beautiful bilingual gift book of poems: selections from Rilke's legendary masterpiece, , with a new introduction by Ursula K. Le Guin.
