"Sonnets to Orpheus" with "Letters to a Young Poet"

by

"Sonnets to Orpheus" with "Letters to a Young Poet" Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The content of these sonnets, appearing comparatively simple at first, resonate far beyond the familiar legend of Orpheus and Eurydice; they have a range that encompasses the Singing God and his beloved Eurydice; legend in general; time; flight and change; architecture, music and dance; and animals, plants, flowers, and fruits.

Synopsis:

Rilke's "Sonnets to Orpheus" appear simple, even casual, at first reading, but have a content which resonates far beyond the familiar legend of Orpheus and Eurydice. The ten letters to the officer-cadet Franz Xavier Kappus, were written between 1903 and 1908.

About the Author

Rainer Maria Rilke is a 20th-century German poet whose work tended to focus on the problems of Christianity in an age of disbelief, solitude, and anxiety. Stephen Cohn is a sculptor, painter, and printmaker.
