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.

This edition deals with these letters.
