For the past twenty-five years, North Point Press has been working with Edward Snow, Rilke's best contemporary translator (Brian Phillips, The New Republic), to bring into English Rilke's major poetic works. The Poetry of Rilke--the single most comprehensive volume of Rilke's German poetry ever to be published in English--is the culmination of this effort. With more than two hundred and fifty selected poems by Rilke, including complete translations of the Sonnets to Orpheus and the Duino Elegies, The Poetry of Rilke spans the arc of Rilke's work, from the breakthrough poems of The Book of Hours to the visionary masterpieces written only weeks before his death. This landmark bilingual edition also contains all of Snow's commentaries on Rilke, as well as an important new introduction by the award-winning poet Adam Zagajewski. The Poetry of Rilke will stand as the authoritative single-volume translation of Rilke into English for years to come.
