Product description

Rilke'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."
