Duino Elegies and The Sonnets to Orpheus Rainer Maria Rilke (translated by Stephen Mitchell)

Summary : Duino Elegies and The Sonnets to Orpheus (Unabridged)

The poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke addresses the issues of God, death, and "destructive time." Rilke tries to transform these problems into an inner world, what he calls "a whole inner world as if an angel, comprehending all space, were blind and looking into himself." Eminent author and translator Stephen Mitchell brings these ideas vividly to life in this new translation of Rilke's most transcendent works.
