Review Text

In his short introduction, poet Peter Porter makes the case for this new translation of the much-translated masterwork (first published in 1922) by Germany's mystical modernist: Cohn avoids the thumping dissonance of previous versions, and preserves Rilke's ambiguities and the organic structure to this oracular and combative poetic sequence.
