Description - The Best of Rilke by Rainer Rilke

Rainer Maria Rilke's best poems are finally available in translations so faithful yet free flowing that a reader forgets they were not originally written in English. Applying the same principle of -form-true- rendering that earned him the Bollingen Prize for his translation of Pushkin's Eugene Onegin, poet-translator Walter Arndt boldly claims to reproduce in English for the first time the prosodic identity of Rilke's finest rhymed poems.
