Book Description

It isn't widely known that Rilke, who ranked as one of the finest writers for his work in German, also wrote over 400 poems in French.

Duino Elegies by Rainer Rilke Duino Elegies, Paperback (May 2013)

Perhaps no cycle of poems in any European language has made so profound and lasting an impact on an English-speaking readership as Rilke's Duino Elegies. This translation was chosen by Phillip Pullman as one of his 40 favourite books.

Sonnets to Orpheus by Rainer Rilke Sonnets to Orpheus, Paperback (October 2012)

In fifty-five sonnets, Rilke plays an astonishing set of philosophical and sensual variations on the Orpheus myth. 'Praising, that's it!' he declares; nature, art, love, time, childhood, technology, poverty, justice - all are encompassed in poems that spark with insight and invention, amongst the joyful and light-footed that Rilke ever wrote.

Letters on God and Letters to a Young Woman by Rainer Rilke Letters on God and Letters to a Young Woman, Paperback (May 2012)

"Letters on God originally published in German by Insel-Verlag under the title eUber Gott, (c)1933 by Insel-Verlag, Leipzig. Letters to a Young Woman originally published in German by Insel-Verlag under the title Briefe an eine junge Frau, (c)1930 by Insel-Verlag, Leipzig."--T.p. verso.

Letters to a Young Poet by Rainer Rilke Letters to a Young Poet, Paperback (April 2012)

At the start of the twentieth century, Rainer Maria Rilke wrote a series of letters to a young officer cadet, advising him on writing, love, sex, suffering and the nature of advice itself; these profound and lyrical letters have since become hugely influential for writers and artists of all kinds. This edition deals with these letters.

Author Biography - Rainer Rilke

Rainer Maria Rilke was born in Prague in 1875 and traveled throughout Europe for much of his adult life, returning frequently to Paris. There he came under the influence of the sculptor Auguste Rodin and produced much of his finest verse, most notably the two volumes of "New Poems" as well as the great modernist novel "The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge." Among his other books of poems are "The Book of Images" and "The Book of Hours." He lived the last years of his life in Switzerland, where he completed his two poetic masterworks, the "Duino Elegies" and "Sonnets to Orpheus." He died of leukemia in December 1926. The acclaimed poet, translator, critic, and publisher A. Poulin, Jr., was born in Maine in 1938. A Professor of English at the State University of New York College of Brockport, he received a translator's grant from The National Endowment for the Arts, among many other honors. His books include "In Advent: Poems"; "A. Poulin, Jr., Selected Poems"; and the widely used textbook "Contemporary American Poetry," which he edited. Poulin was also the founding editor/publisher of BOA Editions. He died in 1996.
