    DescriptionRilke's importance to the history of literature in the twentieth century is based on the power and memorability of his lyrics, and on his successful struggle to articulate a new vision of the human relation to the rest of creation. Wright's brilliant translations of some of Rilke's neglected poems are now widely admired. They are here enhanced by an additional selection and a new introduction by the translator.
