Books By Author 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, 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, 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.
