About the Author
Rainer Maria Rilke (1875 - 1926) is one of the greatest German-language poets of the twentieth century, famed for his lyrical intensity. Born in Prague in 1875, Rilke travelled extensively throughout Europe at the turn of the twentieth century and became deeply involved in the Modernist movement, working with the sculptor Auguste Rodin. His most famous poems are Sonnets to Orpheus and The Duino Elegies, and in prose he is most remembered for Letters to a Young Poet and The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge. He died of leukemia in Switzerland on 29 December 1926. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The variety of forms, the beauty of the translations, and the availability of the face to face pages of German and English, are so good I took them for granted early on and find it difficult to put the book down. The book was in the very good condition listed, and was sent by Oxfam with a brief note of Thanks for buying from them which delighted me. I recommend this book, this edition, and the supplier [...] without hesitation.
