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. Widely loved for its depth of insight and timeless relevance, Rainer Maria Rilke's poetry is among the finest lyrical verse of the last century. 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.
