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.

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.
