5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic translation, 13 Sep 2012

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Duino Elegies & the Sonnets to Orpheus (Vintage International) (Paperback)
This collection is a deep pleasure.

There are free versions available on the internet of these poems, but for me they do not come close to this lucid, shimmering and resonant translation. I do not speak German, so can not comment on the 'authenticity' of this rendering, however I would simply say that this translation speaks to me with a sense of uncanny beauty, whereas others I have read 'feel' translated.
